Spain Islamic Art

A door from the Moroccan city of Fez, carved and painted with natural pigments and presumed to date from the 19th century, is displayed at the “Nur: Light in art and science in the Islamic world” exhibition in Seville, Spain, Friday, Oct 23, 2013. A private museum in the south of Spain is hosting an exhibition of rare Islamic art objects that highlight the role which enlightenment played in decoration and investigation in the Arab world. The exhibition, “Nur: Light in art and science in the Islamic world,” is sponsored by energy company Abengoa and has gathered together 150 pieces from collections like that of the Bodleian Library at Oxford University and private collectors across the world. From there, the entire exhibition travels to the Dallas Museum of Art in Texas. (AP Photo/ Laura Leon)
