The Permanent Collection offers four ways to search the objects and monuments in the Discover Islamic Art Database. Results include two types of material:
Objects and monuments contributed by the Partners from the 14 countries who, between 2004 and 2007, set up Discover Islamic Art with the support of the European Union’s Euromed Heritage programme. Database entries are available in Arabic, English, French and Spanish as well as in the language of the country.
Objects contributed by Partners through the project Explore Islamic Art Collections, launched in 2009. Database entries are shorter and available in English and, for some countries, also in the country’s language.
