In terms of Islamic art, I believe that my 'Gifts of the Sultan' show and the upcoming 'Gardens of Eternity' use themes .

In terms of Islamic art, I believe that my 'Gifts of the Sultan' show and the upcoming 'Gardens of Eternity' use themes to which we can all relate. Los Angeles has the largest Iranian community outside Iran. Gardens of Eternity: Visualising Paradise in Islamic Art' is a pan-Islamic exhibition that will extend from the seventh century up to the present and include some 175 works of art from the Islamic world and diaspora communities. A themed exhibition of this scope, with objects of the highest quality and aesthetic appeal, has never before been undertaken anywhere else.

If you think the art of giving gifts is tricky at home, try making it work abroad. Here are some traditions to be aware of on your travels. Insist a little China, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan

If you think the art of giving gifts is tricky at home, try making it work abroad. While you must carefully choose the item itself, the gift’s wrapping is surprisingly important, too, as is the timing. Insist a little China, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. In many countries in East Asia, when offering a gift, you should expect to be refused once, twice, or even three times.

The offering of gifts is a practice nearly as ancient and widespread as human culture itself. At courts throughout the Islamic world, the exchange of lavish gifts and endowments intimately linked art with diplomacy and royal ambitions, religion, and personal relationships.

This beautifully illustrated book explores the complex interplay between artistic production and gift-based patronage by discussing works of great aesthetic refinement that were either commissioned or repurposed as gifts. By tracing the unique histories of certain artworks, the author reveals how the exchange of luxury objects was central to the circulation, emulation, and assimilation of artistic forms both within and beyond the Islamic world. The catalogue features seventy illustrations of artworks from the 8th to the 20th century. These include some of the most beautiful and least-known objects from the Islamic world, such as jewelry, armor and weaponry, enormous and ornate carpets, and illustrated copies of the Qur'an.
