Worlds most famous collection of Islamic art is now open for the public

Category: Exhibitions

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York reopened their Islamic Art galleries 1 November 2011 after 5 years renovation.

The opening was a long waited event for collectors of Islamic art and those who have already visited the newly renovated buildings, installations and objects on display have not been diappointed. It looks terrific !

Seref Ozen, Cocoon, has taken a serie of excellent carpet and textile photos from the museum and Jozan Magazine is happy to show a few for our readers.
