    A leaf from the history book This chestnut leaf with golden calligraphy dates from the 19th century Ottoman Empire and is part of the exhibition Treasures Of The Aga Kahn Museum. This leaf is so simple yet beautiful because of the calligraphy. It is very interesting that a leaf lasted from the 19th century till now.
