A historical voyage on the tide

Watch and experience an adventure from the beginnings of Islam to the dawn of the 17th century with a remarkable itinerary combining sound, images and optical processes with the legendary seaman, Sinbad.
Embark on a journey with accounts of voyages at the crossroads of Africa's gold and the West's silver, Greek coins and Golconda's diamonds, glass blowers in Alexandria, Venice and Bohemia, and porcelain, silk and spices from China and the Maluku Islands.
Discover how the oceans have been tamed since the beginning of Islam.

Already on show in the Institut du Monde Arabe in November 2017, this exhibition is available in the form of a second, enriched version.
