SACRED HERITAGE

The exhibition Mukaddes Miras consists of 99 hand-written, authentic Qurans obtained from private collections. These holy books were created by various and important calligraphists from diverse eras (between the 9th and 19th century) and regions.

It is the first time that many of these Qurans, originating from such diverse regions such as North Africa, China, India, Mongolia, Algiers, and Iran are presented to the general public. The collections also includes the works of such influential Islamic calligraphists of the likes of Sheik Hamdullah, Hafız Osman, Cafer-i Baysungurî Tebrizî, Mehmet Emin Rüşdi and Hafız Mustafa Şevki.

Organized by the Islam Culture and Arts Platform, the exhibition’s artistic advisor is Associate Professor Dr. Ali Riza Özcan, faculty member at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University .
