"Marco Polo's Dream"
13th Century, Venice
from A Sketch of Venetian History: An Illustrated Story
by Sarah Pierroz
In 1260 C.E., Nicolò and Matteo Polo, fearlessly pushed past known boundaries to explore the remote reaches of the Far East, becoming the first Europeans to cross the Great Wall of China and enter the court of the powerful Kublai Khan. Soon after, Marco Polo joined his father and uncle on their second journey to the Khan’s court. He charmed the great Mongol Emperor with his elaborate tales. For the following 24 years, the Polos traveled the whole of the Khan’s lands as honoured guests. They acted as his emissaries on visits to grand palaces and were free to trade rare silks and gems and spices flowing in and out of the exotic cities. Marco was amazed at everything he saw; he retained remarkable details of the strange and fantastical sights, the wildlife, the smells, and customs of their incredible wanderings.
