With some 320 objects from the Sarikhani Collection, London, and numerous collections of the National Museums in Berlin, the exhibition illustrates the outstanding importance of Iran as a source of inspiration and center of intercultural exchange between the Mediterranean, China and India from the first advanced civilizations of the 3rd millennium BC to the end of the Safavid Empire in the early 18th century.

The exhibits, many of which have never been shown before, provide insights into the art of the courts and urban elites. In a chronologically structured parcours with seven stations, they illustrate incisions, adaptations and transformations. Highlights of the "journey through time" are the pre-Islamic empires of the Achaemenids and Sasanids, the formation of a Persian-Islamic culture and the artistic masterpieces of the 9th-13th centuries as well as the heyday of the Safavids.

A special exhibition of the Museum of Islamic Art - National Museums in Berlin in cooperation with the Sarikhani Collection
