Water, Islam and Art
(1000 items available)
This volume tells the story and mythic resonances of water in the Islamic imagination through artifacts, books and miniatures, but also through canalisation systems in Syria, gardens in Spain and baths in Istanbul. In addition, statements in the Qur’an and subsequent literature illustrate the historic development of the many roles and meanings of water and the incarnation of its significance in Islamic art and craftsmanship.
