Istanbul Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts

(Can you believe I still have photos left from my trip to Turkey?)

What do you put in an art museum when your culture spent years discouraging the creation of representational art?

Well, you fill it with metallurgy...


...calligraphy...


...rugs...


textiles...


... and other fashions.
