"Europe and European appear as terms and ideas mirrored with Asia, face to face with Persia and Islam. Europe recognizes itself through what is different nearby and through the ways the distant neighbor thinks and sees things. The mutual images and representations of Europeans and Asians express phases and processes of the intercultural relations of Europe and Asia. This exhibition at the Macau Scientific and Cultural Centre is about Asian Images of Europeans 1500-1800."excerpt from the introduction by Luís Filipe Barreto, Director of the Macau Scientific and Cultural Centre.
