The catalog also underscores how ancient traditions still affect the life and customs of present-day Iran in almost every sphere of human activity, including sculpture, painting, tile work, jewelry, carpet making, gardening, architecture and engineering, science and medicine, philosophy and folklore, and in the enduring importance of poetry.
