This amazing coin blends Eastern and Western cultures, which create fabulous art pieces that tell their own unique stories. Starry Night is a very famous painting created by Vincent van Gogh which was created during a period when he was in an asylum-seeking care for his mental illness. The painting is beloved for the emotional nature of the brush strokes and the beauty of the colors. The marriage of these two works of art tells the story of the journey, one which might be physical or might be in the mind. This piece depicts the journey both west and east and cleverly displays the marriage of the stories behind these two pieces of art.
