Islamic art

Christian vestment

This cope (1605) is an example of Safavid weaving, knotted using 11 colours of silk, and silver and gold thread. It is probably Armenian.

From The Making of the Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art at the Victoria and Albert Museum (ed. Rosemary Crill and Tim Stanley, V&A Publications, £19.95 (£17.95); 1-85177-485-8). It is a superb record of the creation of this new gallery.
