Christie's | Fine Art Auction House

Islamic Art

English | 繁體中文

Christie's holds a number of world auction records, including £3,631,500 for an important bronze fountainhead in the form of a Hind (Spain, circa mid-10th century); £3,303,750 for a Mamluk enameled and gilded clear glass jug (Egypt or Syria, second half 13th century); and £1,763,750 for a painting The Building of King Dasaratha's Sacrifice, 1594 A.D. Islamic Art sales are held in London throughout the year and in May 2006, Christie's held a very successful inaugural sale in Dubai.

Christie's sales cover carpets, ceramics, manuscripts and metalwork from the Islamic realm, which stretches from the Middle East and Southern Spain to China, India and Southeast Asia.

The artistic expression, which incorporates Greco-Roman and Persian influences, is reflected in an intricate web of geometric, floral and foliate patterns.
