This presentation showcases the Asian Art Museum’s Islamic art collection. Islam has inspired a variety of sacred art, but the scope extends far beyond religious objects into the secular and cultural realms. Calligraphy became the most highly regarded art form in West Asia, and spread its beauty across the world. Come and be fascinated by the complexity and breadth of Islamic art.
