ABSTRACT
Islamic art to be held in London, England for decades is dazzling London this spring and summer. Heaven on Earth: Art from Islamic Lands is a must-see, not only for its almost overwhelming opulence — Mughal jewels the size of golf halls — but because for the first time it brings an understanding to the general public of an apparently glaring contradiction in Islamic art. This is the contrast between the sumptuous luxury of court art, compared with the austere abstraction of art employed in a divine context.
