Resumen del libro

Between the 10th and 12th centuries CE, the Fatimid Caliphate ruled parts of present-day Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Sicily, and Syria. Tracing their descent from the Prophet Muhammads daughter, Fatima, the Fatimids reinvigorated Islamic art, producing splendid pottery, metalwork, rock crystal, wood, textile, and calligraphic creations. This art showcased ingenious techniques, superb decorative methods, and lively motifs displaying an inventive dynamism in the use of human, animal, vegetal, and abstract forms. Architecture, too, became a hallmark of Fatimid grandeur, resulting in such magnificent structures as al-Azhar University in Cairo, the Fatimids capital.
