Anatolia: Home of Eternity
Anatolia: Home of Eternity, is the catalog that accompanies the main exhibition at Europalia Arts Festival, Turkey. It looks at the heart of Turkish culture and illustrates masterpieces brought together from museums from all over Turkey.
Turkish culture is characterized by rituals and religion. On the basis of about 200 objects - archaeological finds, miniatures, sculptures, textile, items in gold, etc. - this book provides a unique glimpse at the diversity of that culture - and of a country that has always been used as bridge between Europe and Asia. The masterpieces are borrowed from prestigious collections, such as the Topkapi Palace Museum, the Istanbul Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations in Ankara.
