Fresco Turfan Collection Berlin
East is east and west is west, and never they will meet. And yet sometimes they do. Many centuries ago Nestorian Christian missionaries and Manichaean sectarians followed the Silk Road and travelled from the Middle East to China. The remnants of their presence there got buried under the sands of the Taklamakan desert.

 Till the dawn of the 20th century, when western adventurers went to this remote region in search of the hidden treasures of Chinese Turkestan. Join their quest, read about foreign devils on the Silk Road and discover the story behind the Turfan Collection in Berlin.
