The Near Eastern world—roughly, the region including India and the Asian countries to its west—is a vivid patchwork of many different peoples, languages, and traditions. Its history stretches back to Neolithic times and its dynasties and empires have contributed in major ways to the development of human knowledge. Comprising works of fine glassware, ceramics, metalwork, painting, weaponry, weaving and much more, Reverent Ornament shares timeless Islamic art that celebrates everyday life, history, and culture in Iran, Egypt, India, Syria, and Turkey. The works, some of which are centuries old, includes objects meant for both palaces and ordinary homes, evoking a rich and comprehensive vision of daily life in the Near East, both recent and long ago.
