A BHW spokesperson previously said, “NOVA Mas International gives us the presentation, Revelations…The Lost Civilizations. On this transcendent voyage, you will discover an astonishing truth. The great civilizations we have all revered, never vanished, they were simply transformed. They guarantee a magical journey, where masqueraders following the signs, will surely fulfil an ancient prophecy.”
