Stained Glass "Damascus" Print

 

This glass painting with more than half a square meter is a set of Islamic elements. The middle motif was inspired by one of the glass windows of the Great Mosque in Damascus. It was originally made for a table but finally remained as an independent painting.

According to the general view the Islamic golden age or Islamic Renaissance can be put onto the period running from 8th to 13th century. The military, economic and cultural superiority of the Islamic World was typical in these few centuries opposite the West, since the Muslim culture wished to create something eternal in engineering, scientific, educational, economic and artistic field, out of which the West profited as well in the later centuries. If we wanted to tie the Islamic golden age to one single city, we would mention Baghdad as it can be bound to both the beginning and the end of the era.
