Fountainhead

Find this object in the Introductory Gallery on Floor 2

Look at this beautiful object in the shape of an animal. Imagine what this deer might be saying… “Hello, my name is Jamila. Before I arrived at the Museum of Islamic Art, I stood on top of a fountain in a great palace near the city of Cordoba in southern Spain. Water poured out of the hole in my mouth. Can you guess how the water got in? What do you think the palace I came from looked like?”

MW.7.1997, Bronze, Spain, 10th century CE
