To mark the 70th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in 2018, visitors to the Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace enjoyed a special display featuring a number of works of art personally selected by His Royal Highness, including works by the artisans of Turquoise Mountain.

For the Buckingham Palace Summer Opening in 2018, from the 21st of July to the 30th of September, The Prince of Wales's favourite art works were displayed alongside works created by artists sponsored by three charities of which HRH is patron: The Royal Drawing School, The Prince's School of Traditional Arts and Turquoise Mountain. Among the Turquoise Mountain works on display were a geodesic dome in walnut wood, created by expert classical carver Naseer Yasna (Mansouri) from Afghanistan; an emerald necklace, the result of a collaboration between Afghan jeweller Saeeda Etebari and international jewellery designer Pippa Small; and a walnut wood and mother of pearl chest, created by Ossama Al Nimer, Moataz Hamoush and Maher Darwish from Turquoise Mountain Jordan. Set amongst works chosen from the Royal Collection by HRH, as well as pieces produced by students of The Royal Drawing School and The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts, these works demonstrated the breadth of The Prince of Wales’s interest in the arts and highlighted the work he has done to ensure artistic traditions continue to thrive.
