Among the displayed objects: ivory caskets from the Nacional Museo/Madrid and the Victoria and Albert Museum/London, Iznik ceramics from Sultanahmet/Istanbul, the wooden panels from Cairo Museum of Islamic art, glass works from Damascus National Museum... and even art works from Medelhavmuseet of Stockholm...
