This volume focuses on the question of meaning in the visual arts of the Islamic world. Twelve essays deal with a wide variety of materials ceramics, metalwork, stone carving, textiles, manuscript illustration, calligraphy, and the forms and decorations of architecture and the topics covered range in date from the seventh to the seventeenth centuries. Some focus on the formal transformations of themes, objects, or motifs in the context of Islamic civilization. Others explore the factors that have shaped the aesthetic perceptions of Islamic artists and patrons. In their search for the fundamental assumptions that shaped the character of Islamic art, the authors utilize a wide variety of primary sources, from historical chronicles and literary tests to monumental inscriptions and numismatics."
