Sharjah - Arab Today

One of the world's most important collections of Islamic textiles from the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation is being celebrated in a new publication created by Sharjah Museums Department (SMD).
"Islamic Textiles: From the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation' was launched on 7 July. The publication honours a collection that has major religious significance, as it focuses on textiles created through the generations for Islam's most Holy Places in Makkah and Madina.
"This beautiful and scholarly book is the first comprehensive guide to these magnificent textiles, which have all been collected over a 20-year period by H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah," explained Manal Ataya, Director General of Sharjah Museums Department.
"This is the second publication in our series highlighting key pieces from the collections of the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation. This series is intended both to draw attention to the artistic, historic and religious significance of our collections, and also enable a wide audience to share in their beauty and learn about their provenance. Academic and religious scholars will also find these publications invaluable." The textile collection featured in the book ranges from 11th to 15th Hijri century (17th to 21st century AD). It stands as a peerless showcase of the exceptional resources, precious materials and artistic excellence that has been lavished on these textiles throughout the ages, and which continues to be today. It also speaks of Muslims' heart-felt sense of duty and dedication in preserving and perpetually honouring them.
SMD launched the book on 7 July , during the staging of ‘Travel through the land', a unique exhibition that explores the journey of transportation across various ages and brings together artefacts, 3D models, paintings and photographs from seven different museums which fall under SMD.
This exhibition is SMD's cultural contribution to the Sharjah Ramadan Festival 2014 – a major celebration that has been organised to mark the Emirate's year as the Capital of Islamic Culture and is exhibited in the Festival's Art Bazaar section.
