Description
In the comparatively peaceful period from the 11th to the 13th centuries, the powerful patronage of the Seljuks favoured the development of the arts, literature and philosophy. Significant developments occurred under their rule, especially in the production of metalwork.

Much of Islamic metalwork lies in its surface decoration. The designs on the bowl of running hares flanked by medallions, are made using the repoussé technique which involves hammering the metal from inside the vessel which creates an elaborate relief decoration. - (GD.036R)
