The Museums collection of Islamic art, which ranges in date from the seventh to the nineteenth century, reflects the great diversity and range of Islamic culture. Nearly 12,000 objects have been assembled in the Museum from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia, India, and Southeast Asia.
A Mughal carpet fragment from the Museum’s collection was made in northern India during the reign of Shah Jahan (ruled 162858), a time of great artistic achievement. The intricate pattern of this pashmina wool and silk fragment has been adapted for our delightful mousepad. Nylon surface, with rubber base. 9”L x 7”W.
