Spanish Queen presents Mahsati Ganjavi’s ancient miniatures to Azerbaijan

Baku. Kamala Guliyeva – APA. Queen Sofía of Spain, née Princess Sophia of Greece and Denmark, presented ancient miniatures of great Azerbaijani poetess Mahsati Ganjavi to Nizami Ganjavi International Center on her 900th anniversary, deputy director for scientific affairs at the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences Ganja Scientific Center Samir Pishnamazzade told APA.

 


He said 8 miniatures and an illustration were presented to the Center by the Queen. The miniatures also include ancient manuscripts: “Some of miniatures are works of art taken to Spain from the Library of Ardabil by the Russians in the past. Some of them belong to Spain. As Spain had been a Muslim country for a long period of time, there are many ancient Eastern, Arab-Persian manuscripts there.”

The presented miniatures date back to the 14th – 15th centuries.
