Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World
, a new documentary by Unity Productions Foundation, takes audiences on an epic journey across nine countries and over 1,400 years of history. It explores themes such as the Word, Space, Ornament, Color and Water and presents the stories behind many great masterworks of Islamic Art and Architecture.

The film explores the richness of Islamic art in objects big and small, from great ornamented palaces and the play of light in monumental mosques to the exquisite beauty of ceramics, carved boxes, paintings and metal work.  It revels in the use of color and finds commonalities in a shared artistic heritage with the West and East. The film also examines the unique ways in which Islamic art turns calligraphy and the written word into masterpieces and develops water into an expressive, useful art form.

Like all art, Islamic art carries with it the fundamental values and perspectives of the artists who created it as well as those who commissioned and paid for it.  It incorporates the basic themes of transcendent beauty common to all creative endeavours.

Narrated by Academy Award winning performer Susan Sarandon, this dazzling documentary reveals the variety and diversity of Islamic art.  It provides a window into Islamic culture and brings broad insights to the enduring themes that have propelled human history and fuelled the rise of world civilization over the centuries.

    When deliver outweighs demand you'll uncover a basic financial law which would steer down the cost of replica rolex so as to make greater sales. Color has been amongst the delivering factors for swiss rolex air king replica. On the whole, a unisex or gender neutral appearance; a man or woman can wear black-on-black rolex Submariner replica watches sale and not look too masculine or feminine.
