Iron Pillar of Delhi. Originally part of a Hindu Temple Complex. Produced in 912BC, the pillar is called "a testament to the high skill of ancient Indian blacksmiths" because of its high resistance to corrosion and surviving the weather since 2000 years.

A highly decorated prayer niche. Part of the large mosque next to the Qutb Minar in Mehrauli.

This panel displays a variety of different decorative motifs, including two varieties of Arabic calligraphy. The carvings on the row furthest to the right are in an early Arabic script called Kufic, which seems to have developed in…
