Exhibition's minisite)

Following Parma, London and Paris, "The Path of Princes. Masterpieces of the Aga Khan Museum Collection" is now shown in Lisbon. The exhibition comprises works of Islamic art from the collection of the future Aga Khan Museum, due0 to open in 2011 in Toronto, Canada. These works of art are a testimony of the great diversity of the cultural heritage and patrimony of Muslim civilisations, covering a wide geographical region extending from the Iberian Peninsula to China, over a thousand-year period of history, from the 9th to the 19th century.

This exhibition is organised in two main themes: "The Word of God" and "The Power of the Sovereign", including a remarkable selection of miniature paintings, manuscripts, jewellery, ceramics, wood and metal objects among other artworks.

The exhibition is held under the High Patronage of His Highness the Aga Khan and His Excellency the President of the Republic of Portugal.
