Iranian Art @ the MET

At the MET on Friday with my Art Students I discovered a new love - Iraqi and Iranian art from 1100-1400!  The vibrant blues, mosaics and elaborate script are just so beautiful.  It is so refreshing to see art from the non-western tradition and so interesting to see art from a new perspective and to enjoy a culture's art that is so often overshadowed by violence and negativity.
