Virtual tour: Art of the Islamic and Indian Worlds including Oriental Rugs and Carpets

Immerse yourself in the shimmering silk and metal-thread details of the Baron Adolphe Carl von Rothschild ‘Polonaise’ carpet, showcasing the artistic mastery of Safavid weaving produced during the reign of Shah’ Abbas I. Moreover, be captivated by a magnificent folio from the Shah Tahmasp Shahnama — the most opulent poetic manuscript produced in the Islamic world. Additional highlights include a monumental Seljuk stucco panel and two splendid 19th century paintings by Indian artist Bishan Singh: one beautifully depicting Maharaja Ranjit Singh in Durbar and the other showcasing a meeting of the Amritsar Municipal Committee.
