Treasured Ornament: 10 Centuries of Islamic Art illuminates the expertly-crafted and exquisitely ornate objects that anchored everyday life in the region we today refer to as the Middle East, including Iran, Egypt, India, Syria, and Turkey. Featuring fine glassware, ceramics, metalwork, painting, weaponry, weaving, and much more, Treasured Ornament evokes the rich history of the Islamic world, and the shared human experiences that bind us, transcending borders and boundaries.
