Pair of Doors

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 451

The Beveled style, which is seen in many different media in Islamic art, is identified most closely with Samarra, the ninth‑century royal residence of the Abbasid caliphs. It was from there that the style spread widely to other parts of the Islamic world.
