Art of the Arab Lands

Amy Tyson

One of my favorite places to visit in New York is the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2011, the museum finished an 8 year renovation to their collection of Islamic Art called "Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia and Later South Asia".

The decorative arts are a treasure trove of inspiration for pattern design and craftsmanship. There rooms of rare and amazing hand knotted rugs. Also worth noting, incredible ceramics, metal work, plaster work and miniature paintings.
