Phoenix Ancient Art was founded in the 1960s by the late S. Aboutaam and is now run by his sons Hicham and Ali. The brothers have been surrounded by ancient objects ever since they can remember. ‘We only recommend that a client acquire a work of art that they feel strongly about,’ they say. ‘Like many of the collectors we advise, we see our role as temporary guardians of a small part of the world’s important cultural and artistic heritage.’ The galleries display exceptional works extending over more than 7,000 years of human history, from the Neolithic Period of the 6th Millennium BC to the 14th century AD. ‘Each object… is personally selected by us for its intrinsic beauty, aesthetic value, and historical importance.
