Hicham Aboutaam and his team carefully select each artefact and work of art on view for its historical importance as well as its intrinsic beauty and artistic value. First and foremost, Phoenix Ancient Art desires the works of art and antiquities to be appealing to the eye, and then its other facets – age, culture and historical significance add a further dimension. Each object on display is an example of great craftsmanship and refinement as well as an exemplar of the different civilizations that span the displays.
Hicham Aboutaam and his team at Phoenix make sure to have their displays do the utmost to let the antiquities speak for themselves.
Hicham Aboutaam manages Phoenix Ancient Art’s New York gallery, at 47E. 66th Street. Here you will find exceptional antiquities that represent over 7,000 years of our existence, spanning the expanses of the Neolithic Period of the 6th Millennium B.C.E. through to the 14th Century C.E.
The display of each item by Aboutaam in his gallery is unique, and you will find the works of art displayed against settings of simplicity and elegance. Thus, the object on display takes possession of its space and speak for itself. This also allows collectors and the general public to solely focus on each individual artefact.
Hicham and Ali have taken over their father’s business, and they have made great leaps forwards since assuming the reigns of Phoenix Ancient Art.
