MAO'S Entrance

Love the entrance to the MAO ( Museum of Oriental Art ), it looks very Zen.

The Museum of Oriental Art (Italian: Museo d'Arte Orientale, also known by the acronym MAO) is a museum located in Palazzo Mazzonis in the city of Turin, Italy.
The museum contains one of the most important Asian art collection in Italy.

 The museum was opened on December 5, 2008, with the merging of oriental collection of Turin City Museum of Ancient Art and various contributions from the Turin City Hall, the Region of Piedmont, the Giovanni Agnelli Foundation and Compagnia di San Paolo. The first opening was visited by around 10,000 people.
