How quickly do you expect people to read?! Could you allow any/and all of the informational “writing” to remain just a few seconds longer on the screen, so that the audience could actually read what it says. Thank you.

Stunning art of Islam is always a delight. Such a shame you didn't give the video the love it deserves and make it true HD (1080p minimum please)! So much of the detail of these works is lost to the YouTube fuzzies.

What an idiotic comment made by Canby!! Irrespective of what is going on in the world? Islamic art is second to none and I think I would have been happier hearing Ms. Haidar throughout. Canby does a disservice to the beauty here.

Pretty things does not make art, a chippendale writing desk is a beautiful thing but its not art. So none of this is art.

Art vs crafts

Ben Jerry So what is your definition of art? A few splodges of paint on a canvas , I suppose ; and then you will spend the next year wetting yourself with excitement over it. The traditional view is any handiwork done finely is art. What we see in this video is dfinitely art.

at 10:25 same the Karatchov large medallion carpet on the wall is typical of the works of art of textile art which has been produced by Armenian Villageous person in the 19th century. By the way is the title of these new galleries Islamic Art ... well chosen ? several works of art as the Bidri or the following miniature from different religion than the Islamic one. I deeply respect Islam, but as weel I deeply respect, too, historical truth. What do you do with Zoroastrian works of Art ?

at 1:20 The bas-relief is for sure either Armenian origin either from an Armenian model of bas relief (two fishes = christianity) + the 2 birds with human figures are exactly those which are communly figured on Armenian Gospels + the Grenade tree which used to be a symbol or symbolic motive of Armenian Royal or Prince families. The Grenade is even today one of the most familiar symbols of Armenia.
