A catalogue for the permanent collection of the Museu do Oriente in Lisbon, which focuses on the presence of Portugal in Asia.
"When we began programming the exhibition modules, we understood that the collection of more than 1000 objects related to the Portuguese presence in Asia was almost unstudied. As such, the making of this catalogue was the indispensable occasion to do so. In general, it may be said that the goal was achieved, although many segments of the collection still require deeper studies, as evidenced by the Chinese terracotta and some aspects of legacies in deposit." excerpt of an introductory text by Fernando António Baptista Pereira.
