Otsuka Pharmaceutical had just 17 employees at the end of World War Two and now has around 23,000. From a fistful of sand it built a museum now housing a collection of ceramic reproductions that will never change in over 2,000 years. Still, its most interesting feat is the reunion of masterpieces from all over the world which will give visitors to feel like being in the London National Gallery, the New metropolitan Museum, the Louvre Museum and the Vatican at the same time.
There are now some 1,070 world famous masterpieces in one place with a review of 3,000 years of art history. As well, frescoes such as Giotto's Scrovegni Chapel and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling have been recreated in their home surroundings in the historical reconstructions of the
Museum (the Tomba degli Augure- Tarquinia, Italy, the Villa Dei Misteri, Pompeii, Italy, the Casa venere in conchiglia, Pompeii Italy, Saint Theodorus, Cappadoce, Turkey, Saint-Martin, Nohant-Vic, France, Saint Nicholas Orphanos, Salonika, Greece, la Capella degli Scrovegni, Padua, Italy, Sistine Hall, Vatican City, Studiolo, Urbino, Italy, the Room of El Greco, Spain, the country house of Goya, the «Black paintings», Prado, Spain, Monet's Nympheas, musée de l'Orangerie, Paris).
The collection of masterworks has been arranged in historical order from the ancient through contemporary eras. Through a rigorous process some 935 artworks have been chosen to form this encapsulation of Western art history.
