    Question Help with a little text

    "The Hermitage Museum should not be seen just as a building where a large collection of historical pieces of Europe and Asia are exhibited; instead, it should be seen as living witness of the eternal contradictions of the Russian society. On one hand, the hermitage symbolises the very proud of the Russian patriotism, but on the other, it reveals the perpetual obsession of the Russian culture for the Western society".

    What are "historical pieces of Europe and Asia" They sound like tracts of land imported from those continents. How about 'artifacts', 'pieces of art', 'art pieces', or whatever they are.
