This collection "contains superb examples of inlaid bronzes and brasses from 6th/12th- Herat and 7th/13th-century Mosul [and other locations]...Inlaid gold, silver and coper, bearing planetary and astrological figures, mystical symbols, and effusive dedications to sultans and petty rulers, these beautiful objects take the reader into a world where superstition, religion and politics jostle for supremacy, and are impressive evidence that works of art reflect the societies they serve." -- dj flap.
