Islamic Art is not Arab
Amsterdam Tropenmuseum is presenting an exhibition of Islamic art.
For some people 'Islamic' identity is equal to Arab 'identity', a wrong idea.
The majority of artistic works at this exhibition are also mostly from non-Arab countries which Arabs brought Islam there after 7th country AD. Countries such as India, Persia (Iran) and Turkey.
The above photo shows a cup from Savafid Persia in 16th century.
The exhibition is on display until Nov. 3, 2013.
