An example of a piece to note is the two portraits of the Prime minister and his wife displayed on the right side upon entering the gallery. They look like an ordinary painting but upon closer inspection, you'll find that it's actually embroidery done using horse and goat hair. One section is devoted to gifts made of wood, leather, crystal and lacquer, as well as musical instruments and stone objects.
Another section comprises textiles, games, weaponry, ceramics, plaques and Islamic art.

There are also gifts of silver, copper, brass and pewter. There is even an array of automobiles. Some of the exhibits are special awards received by the Prime Minister and his wife.
