Bowl with Eagle

Muslim Ibn al-Dahhan Egyptian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 454

The signature of the artist Muslim appears beneath the eagle's right claw and underneath the foot of this remarkable bowl. Muslim is the only Egyptian potter of this period (ca. 1000) whose name is known. In representing this heraldic eagle, he used a motif that had been popular for a long time and was not limited to the iconography of Fatimid works.
