      Excerpted by permission of Abbeville Press. Also from this era is a ceramic mask used for decorating walls found among the ruins of what is believed — not without controversy — to be a Mongol -built Buddhist temple in the southern suburbs of Sultan Gala. We leaf through the drama of the seasons-the crystal winter, the tender spring, the long summer, the burnished autumn-and encounter the living treasures of Persia: the people, winding their way through mudbrick village lanes, gathering in crowded bazaars, picnicking along mountain streams, and congregating for prayer in tiled mosques. Macedonian soldiers fought against Athens and Sparta in Xerxes' army.

      We also know of blades and handles of knives in jade, often inlaid with gold wire and engraved. Numerous carpets between and have been conserved since the Safavid period, but the dating and establishment of the origin of these carpets remains very difficult. His successor, Shah Mohammed Khodabandabeing blind, took little interest in books, ending the restart which had been set in motion. The best-preserved of all the structures in Merv is the 12th-century mausoleum of Sultan Sanjaralso in Sultan Gala. They approached this area from the Caspian and in captured Geok Tepe. Why this?

The discovery, on the walls of houses of Kubacha, of ceramics of a very homogeneous style rapidly led historians to believe that there existed a centre of production in the city.

Thus, the majority of the carpets produced during the 16th century, that is, principally under Shah Ismail and Shah Tahmasp, are called "with medallion" because they are organized around a large central multi-lobed medallion sometimes called Shamsa, that is "sun", and the corner decorations each carry a quarter of a medallion which is strongly reminiscent of that in the centre.
