Islamic Art

What is it about Islamic art?

Art collections like ceramics, textiles, carpets, metalwork, glass and calligraphy have always fascinated me. It is the nonrepresentational decoration of this table that can be appreciated for having the absence of figural imagery which is at least within a religious context.

 

For any audience a visit to a museum that display Islamic galleries can represent the first step toward understanding the history of a religion and a culture that are often in the news but are little understod.

I really enjoyed viewing the following link:
