Cynthia M. Perez's insight:

Hola Mi nombre es Cynthia M. Pérez y les presento mi Scoop sobre el Arte Isálmico. Para empezar, Islám es una " religión monoteísta abrahámica cuyo dogma se basa en el libro del Corán, el cual establece como premisa fundamental para sus creyentes que «No hay más Dios que Alá y que Mahoma es el último mensajero de Alá»." El arte Islámico es complejo. Me encanta su arquitectura. Me quedo sin palabras al ver imágenes de la arquitectura Islámica de los años 750 al siglo XlV. Lo mas que me llama la atención es que en cada arte u obra que hicieron, cuentan una historia y/o un suceso, así muchos historiadores pueden saber como vivian y cuales eran sus rituales de su diario vivir. Es íncreible saber que hay tantas cosas por descubrir, aprender y conocer sobre el mundo y sobre las vidas pasadas.  -Cynthia M. Pérez (en el video esta unos cortos de un documental sobre el arte Islámico.)

The David Collection - The Samanids | Arte Islámico Antiguo | Scoop.it
Fragment of a samitum-woven textile, silkEastern Iran or Central Asia; 8th-9th century
32.5 × 38.5 cm

A textile like this one, with two confronted bulls in a beaded medallion, is clearly indebted to earlier Sasanian and Sogdian design traditions (see 4/2005). The bulls stood on a winged palmette, now almost worn away, with a stylized plant between them. The roundel over the animals’ forelegs – which looks rather like a Royal Air Force emblem – is a non-naturalistic element that was to prove unusually tenacious in later Islamic animal depictions, and was at times given a more almond-like shape.

The group to which this samitum-woven textile belongs has been ascribed on the basis of an inscription on a similar textile to the Central Asian city of Zandane, near Bukhara. The city was incorporated into the Umayyad caliphate in the beginning of the 8th century.

Earthenware albarello, painted in blue in, and with two tones of luster over, an opaque, white glazeManises, Spain; 1st half of 15th century
H: 29.5 cm

Both faience and the luster technique reached Muslim Spain from Iraq by way of Egypt. In the middle of the 13th century, high-quality lusterware was made in Malaga, from which it spread with Muslim craftsmen to Christian Spain. This “Spanish-Moorish” pottery was exported e.g. to Italy, where it was called majolica or faience, after the island Mallorca and the town of Faenza.

A jar with concave sides is called an albarello, probably from the Spanish-Arabic word al-barrada – a jug. The type was most often used in pharmacies, since the shape made it easy to grasp the jars even when they stood in lines.

Rosewater sprinkler, embossed, engraved, and punched brass, inlaid with copper and silverEastern Iran or Afghanistan; 2nd half of 12th century
H: 15.3 cm

This rosewater sprinkler belongs to a group of brassware from the Islamic world that has sculpturally shaped motifs as its most distinctive decorative element.

The most monumental pieces are a group of large candlesticks, of which the museum owns quite a simple example. But despite their size, they are surpassed by this masterfully executed bottle when it comes to decoration. Ten lions and six birds were embossed in incredibly high relief and furthermore engraved and punched. In between them are various types of interwoven bands inlaid with silver, along with rosettes of silver and copper.

Cynthia M. Perez's insight:

Miniature from a copy of Firdawsi’s Shah-nama. “Mubad-i Mubadan Brings Food to the Captive Vizier Izad-i Gashasp”Iran, Tabriz; between 1300 and 1340
Leaf: 24 × 18.5 cm

The manuscripts that were made in the Mongol or Il-Khanid period have both features from “Arab painting” and elements from Far Eastern art. This painting is quite Arab in expression, while scenes with warriors and landscapes display Chinese inspiration to a higher degree.

The first extant copies of Firdawsi’s famous 11th-century Persian epic, the Book of Kings, were written under the Il-Khanids. This miniature comes from one of the “small Shah-namas” that are considered by some to be precursors of the period’s more mature masterpiece, the great “Demotte Shah-nama.”

Cynthia M. Perez's insight:

Aqui presento un manuscrito; "Los manuscritos que se hicieron en el período mongol o Il-Khanid tienen ambas características de "pintura árabe" y elementos de arte del Lejano Oriente. Esta pintura es muy árabe en la expresión, mientras que las escenas con guerreros y paisajes mostrar inspiración China a un grado superior. Las primeras copias existentes de la famosa Firdawsi la épica persa del siglo Xl, el Libro de los Reyes."

Bottle, blue-green glass with luster decoration. Modern neckEgypt; end of 9th-beginning of 10th century H: 13.5 cmThe luster technique was probably discovered by Egyptian glassmakers as early as the 4th century, but in the 8th-12th century, it experienced a renaissance in Egypt and Syria. In this technique, a decoration of metal oxides is painted on the ready-blown glass, which after firing has taken on an indiscernible metallic layer: luster. By using different metal oxides, different colors could be produced, as we see on this bottle, whose base and neck have lighter tones. The stylized vine leaves on the decoration are related to Abbasid ornamentation, which would indicate that the bottle should be dated early, to the Tulunid period.

Upper part of a double door, carved and applied woodMorocco; 16th century
H: 198.5; W: 204.5 cm

The wooden panel is just the upper half of a double door that must originally have been at least four meters tall. The earliest doors of this kind are known from southern Spain and Morocco in the 14th century. They were used to form an architectural whole together with stucco and tiles, which also had geometric patterns. This door, however, comes from 16th-century Morocco, where it must have been used in an important religious or secular building.

The complicated geometric decorations that can be repeated endlessly are among the distinctive features of Islamic art. Decorations of this kind have often been seen as a metaphor of the infiniteness of God.

Fragment of a glass bowl, decorated with gold and blue enamel between two layers of glass. (Sandwich glass) Syria or Iran; 10th century
H: 8.5 cm

The decoration was created by first applying gold and blue enamel to the inside of a glass bowl, after which a second glass bowl was blown into the first, encapsulating the decoration in the glass. Sandwich glass of this type is known from both the Roman and Byzantine eras, but is extremely rare from the Islamic period. The glass fragment bears a decoration of winged palmettes and a Kufi inscription that dates it to the 10th century. As such, it also provides a key to dating other Islamic glass of this type.

More Information: This shaped carpet belongs to a group of fine Indian carpets distinguished by an arched trapezoidal form, a pile of sheep’s wool, and rows of naturalistic floral bouquets oriented towards the left, upper, and right edges. Such carpets are attributed to Lahore or Kashmir and generally dated to the reign of Shah Jahan (r. 1628–66). Their original use is subject to speculation. Some scholars have suggested that they were ordered for the Amber Fort, the residence of the Kachwaha Rajputs, where, arranged in pairs, they perhaps enclosed a fountain or throne. Others have argued that they furnished tent complexes.
