1 M.B. Piotrovsky and J.M. Rogers (eds.)
Heaven on Earth: Art from Islamic Lands. Works from the State Hermitage Museum and the Khalili Collection
Prestel; Munich, Germany; 2004; 3791330551 / 9783791330556; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
From the exhibition rooms of The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg and the Khalili Collection in London comes this dazzling display of art from the Islamic world. The exhibits, which are of great cultural, religious and aesthetic importance, include Qur'ans, textiles, jewelled objects and hardstones, metalwork, ceramics and paintings, and offer a superb introduction to the fine and decorative arts of the Islamic world. Ranging in date from the ninth to the nineteenth century and covering an area from Spain and the Arab world to Persia and the Indian subcontinent, they are a vivid demonstration of the well-known Muslim tradition: "Verily, God is beautiful and loves all beauty." Authoritative essays by distinguished Islamic scholars, maps, and more than 150 colour photographs make this exhibition catalogue an indispensable addition to the library of all who are interested in Islamic art and culture. Printed Pages: 192 with 150 colour illustrations. 004158
