The Beginning of Journey
Approximately 6,000-7,000 years ago, human beings began the domestication of the horse in the Eurasian Steppes. As the earliest form of transportation, horses enabled people to travel to farther places, indirectly encouraging the development of stages. The horse sculpture located on the first floor exactly represents the beginning of traveling.
