The exhibition featured 63 photographs of miniature paintings and calligraphy in Iran. Fine arts in Iran, an ancient nation, were maintained and followed through generations. One of the most important genres of painting is miniature painting. Iranian miniaturist painting represented Iranian visual arts, which was primarily a combination of mystical Islamic ideas, and also the expression of spiritual values. Iranian calligraphy had a long history and was basically a transition from conventional way of scripting to calligraphy in the world to Islam by the Iranian. Iranian calligraphy was mainly used to design Qu'ran, religious texts, and mystical poems of the great poets or inscriptions on buildings.

In his speech, the Ambassador of Iran said Iranian arts reflected the message of friendship, compassion, ethics and epistemology. He hoped events such as this exhibition would contribute to enhancing the understanding between the people and scholars of the two countries. The Iranian embassy to Hanoi wants to continue its cultural activities with USSH. In particular, he hoped that the Iran center will soon be opened at the University and Persian language recognized as an official subject.
