London, United Kingdom.
Continuing from the last post, this is a pictorial featuring the British Museum.
The work, entitled Background Story 7 appears to be a tall 5 metres tall Chinese painting but it is in fact shadows created by a mixture of materials as you take a look at the back of the work.
If you are lucky there are booths such as these for you to have some hands on time with the artifacts. Featured here is money including Bronze Age Chinese currency as well as modern day banknotes.

The Japan Gallery is quite small with quite a few of replicas along with actual artifacts and relics. However, there are a few interesting exhibits such as a set of Japanese armor and a clock that belongs to a daimyo (a feudal lord).
