The year 2019 marks 40 years to the Islamic Republic of Iran. On February 11, 1979, the Islamic revolution won in Iran. The last shahinshah of the Persian Empire, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, was overthrown. The 2500-year history of the Persian Monarchy came to a close. Undoubtedly, the Islamic revolution in Iran marked a significant chapter in the history of the 20th century and can in fact be ranked on par with the Bolshevik October Revolution in Russia, which, like the Iranian one, turned the whole country “upside down” and to this day continues to affect political processes in the region and worldwide.

A freshly released IMF’s World Economic Outlook brings no comforting picture to anyone within the G-7, especially in the US and EU: The WTO Round is dead, trade wars are alive, GCC is rapidly Pakistanising while the Asia’s core and Far East slows down. No comfort either comes from the newest Oxfam Report - Are 26 billionaires worth more than half the planet?, which the ongoing Davos Vanity Fair known as the WEF tries to ignore. The Brexit after-shock is still to reverberate around.

The timing of “Mini Wonders: Czech Toys Past and Present”, a touring exhibition hosted by the All-Russian Decorative Art Museum in partnership with the Czech Centre in Moscow, was darkly fortuitous. It opened in the end of 2018 to coincide with the holiday season, when traditionally more visitors including families with children, try snacking on the museums during a long vacation period over the New Year. Every year the museum offers colourful shows spotlighting antique and modern New Year tree decorations and toy design.
