Through monumental architectural pieces as well as intimately scaled artwork, the exhibition conjures up a land of many faiths and explores life, both royal and everyday, in the capital the Fatimids founded, al-Qahirah, or Cairo. The Fatimids Dynasty built one of the world’s oldest universities, defined luxury fashion for a millennium, compiled one of the greatest libraries, and fostered the development of arts and sciences.
Visitors will see a collection of rare objects such as luminous ceramics, intricate carvings shaped from delicate rock crystal, luxury objects and artifacts on loan from international collections including the Musée du Louvre in Paris, France; Benaki Museum, Athens, Greece; Victoria and Albert Museum, London, United Kingdom; and collections from Italy, Germany and Denmark to name a few.
