The images of this group of engraved plaques feature musicians and dancers. The engraved artwork on these pieces of basswood dates to 11th and 12th century Fatimid Egypt, where local artists were reaching new heights in their artistic expression and capabilities. These musical scene images here were once carved into decorated ivory plaques. Each figure belongs to an ensemble and shows an imaginary courtly scene where a seated figure is accompanied by dancers and musicians in his court. The details of the faces, clothing, bodily movements, and gestures, all point to an artistic movement of real depictions - something that coincides with this moment in Islamic art history.
We have included all five figures in this amazing natural basswood set. Each figure has been laser engraved into natural plaques of wood with live edge. It is a mix of medieval, modern, rustic, elegance, music, and magic all in one. You can arrange this group in any way that you see fit to decorate a wall space.
This decor group is meant for lovers of history, music, art, and beauty, because we have combined all these elements into one.
The size of each piece varies.
Dancer 1: 4.5" x 11"
Dancer 2: 5" x 11"
Drummer: 8" x 8"
Seated Prince: 7" x 8"
