This Islamic bronze bucket is an exceptional
example of the great art skills developed by the
Islamic society during the two-hundred year
This period of time is known as the classical
or the golden age of Islamic art.
New decorative and innovative motifs replaced
more formalized and stylized old ones, as an
to the urge of realism. Anthropomorphic and
zoomorphic elements (hastae) made also their
appearance on metal vessels, which were often
made in the form of animals too.
