Silver, intaglio amber, Iran Description This ring with the intaglio amber is a good example of the collaboration between the lapidary and the calligrapher. Safavid art refers to art in Persia (Iran) (1501-1722), a high point for the art of metal and glass. While of course nourished by Persian culture, the Safavid art was strongly influenced by Turkmen culture (having due regard to the origins of the dynasty), as well as Chinese, Ottoman and Western cultures.
