The famed Náprstek Museum in Prague, Czech Republic has a new exhibit on the Buddhist history of Afghanistan, featuring artifacts borrowed from the National Museum in Kabul. The exhibit includes many pieces, like the above gold-gilded Buddha, from Mes Aynak.

If you are able, we urge you to visit the exhibit. While we worked hard to show the beauty of Mes Aynak in Saving Mes Aynak, it's another thing entirely to see that beauty in person. 

The exhibit, titled "Afghánistán – zachráněné poklady buddhismu" will go from February 5, 2016 - April 30, 2016.  If you're fluent in Czech, check out this video below that the Náprstek Museum put together for this special event. In anticipation of the exhibit, Saving Mes Aynak also screened at the museum on December 15.
