Join us for a guided tour and a more in depth look at the history, techniques and symbolism of these Persian style miniature paintings. The artworks of the Haft Paykar’ or ‘Seven Beauties’ focus on the transformation of King Bahrām, from a worldly ruler dominated by earthly desires to becoming a wise ruler. As the stories progress he re-emerges from seven pavilions after hearing the stories of the Seven Princesses, with the understanding of love as the guiding force for justice and spiritual enlightenment.
