Aesthetic Glory

We plan to cover many articles introducing Islamic Art and its development. By no means will we ever do justice to its greatness, but we hope we can bring you a step closer to this aesthetic glory of Islam.

The definition of Islamic Art is really based on who is defining it. More often than not you will find many western material looking at Islamic Art from an orientalist standing, whereas the Muslim view may be completely different. Ultimately the Muslim artist knows the true meaning behind each artwork he/she creates, we can only make a judgment on what we observe.

I thought I might begin with a short introduction: Muslim Art and Ornaments, published by the Foundation for Science Technology and Civlilsation - it will begin you on your journey to understanding Islamic Art a little more.
