Portrait of Hasan Ali Mirza Shuja al-Saltana

Find this object in the Iran & Central Asia 16th-19th century Gallery on Floor 3

Can you find clues in the picture to suggest that this person was important? You are actually looking at royalty. This is a portrait of Prince Hasan Ali Mirza Shuja al-Saltana who lived more than 100 years ago. The man in the portrait next to him is his brother – when you next visit MIA, see if you can spot any family resemblance? Why not take a picture with your family too?
