This room focuses on the far-reaching impact of the Abassid style in the eastern Islamic world. Included are the artistic achievements of the eleventh-century Ghaznavid and twelfth-century Seljuq Sultans, whose patronage ushered in a brilliant and inventive period of art and culture in Iran and Central Asia. Among the highlights are luster-painted and other ceramic vessels from twelfth-century Kashan and Rayy, a pair of lifesize statues of palace guards, and an early thirteenth-century monumental bronze incense burner in the shape of a lion.
