Very nice selection of ancient tapestries & fabrics focusing on the involvement & expertise of Islamic craftsmen in fine fabrics, as well as an interesting display of miniature buildings (mosques) around the world. I was disappointed there was no mention of the prayer rug-as it is probably the most known contribution to western interior decorating that there is. Also, the Blue Mosque is not an Islamic design, but rather a Roman contribution as it was designed much like the San Sophia that sits across from it in Istanbul and is one of the oldest and early Christian -Byzantine churches (now used as a mosque) The credit should be attributed to the Romans who designed the arch and who's architecture was used in the first Basilicas.
