Scope note
Style of a sub-group of Veneto-Saracenic metal wares. Objects in this group were apparently made in the West, probably in northern Italy, to imitate Islamic wares. While individual motifs were accurately copied there is a basic misunderstanding of the rules of Islamic proportion and a disregard for any relationship between positive and negative shape.
