Art History

Many examples of Islamic arms and armor are especially noteworthy for their opulent decoration, a fact for which they were already renowned in the Middle Ages. Their makers adorned the arms with a variety of techniques such as damascening, gilding, inlay, and gold and silver encrusting, as well as setting with jewels and enameling. On some ceremonial items, the decoration achieved such sumptuous effects that the final appearance of the object has more in common with an item of jewelry than a weapon.
