Exhibition: From the Ottomans to the Qajars – The Art and Design of Hairdressing Accessories

Creative Museum - From the Ottomans to the Qajars

Exhibition dates: 1 March – 1 July 2016

The Qajar dynasty (17861925) created an original style of Persian arts and crafts by incorporating Indian and Chinese ideas into the traditions of Ancient Persia. Their comb designs reveal a unique skill, expertise, way of life, poetry, and spirituality.

This is an online exhibition, with audio presentation and a slideshow of exquisitely painted and decorated hair combs.
