“One Thousand and One Nights,” an exotic and intricate exploration of the roots of Western folktales, is set to open in Paris on November 27th. Featuring delicate works of art, aged manuscripts, and learned storytellers, visitors to the exhibit will see the progression of various myths into the hearts and minds of artists and individuals over the centuries.

Full of flying carpets, genies, love and battle, a Paris show opening Tuesday lifts the curtain on "One Thousand and One Nights", exploring the roots of the folk tales and their powerful influence in the West.

Through some 350 manuscripts, artworks, artefacts and film clips, the show at the Arab World Institute traces the tales' journey from their origin in Indian and Persian folkore, to their translation into Arabic in the eighth century.
