Islamic Art at The Louvre Paris

After almost 11 years of work the Louvre’s new wing dedicated to Islamic Art is now open to the public. Amidst the awe inspiring palace walls it is housed under a futuristic looking ceiling, designed by architects Rudy Ricciotti and Mario Bellini. It showcases a collection of almost 18,000 artifacts that range from the 7th to the 19th century, making it the West’s most valuable and extensive islamic art collection. Definitely worth a visit.

Take a look at the slide above for some more pictures.
