Mightier Than The Sword
Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne
22nd Mar – 25th May 2003
This exhibition, drawn largely from the magnificent collection of the British Museum, London, includes a wide range of inscribed objects in a variety of different materials – ceramics, metalwork, stone, paper and textiles – from the heartlands of Islam to South East Asia.
In collaboration with the Altajir World of Islam Trust, Melbourne University’s Ian Potter Museum of Art will be the venue to host this visiting collection, offering a rare insight into Islamic high culture. The exhibition will be supported by an education program, public lectures and exhibits from the university’s own significant Koranic holdings.
