The Magnificent Seven: The Great Fatimid Rock Crystal Ewers from Egypt

On Thursday, March 10, 7:00 p.m.

Jeremy Johns, Professor of the Art and Archaeology of the Islamic Mediterranean and Director of the Khalili Research Centre for the Art and Material Culture of the Middle East at the University of Oxford, and Dr. Elise Morero, Researcher with the Centre, will discuss the processes and provenance behind the seven known Fatimid rock crystal ewers from Egypt. Drawing from the example on view in Spirit and Matter: Masterpieces from the Keir Collection of Islamic Art, Johns and Morero will take a multidisciplinary approach to examining the history of these rare objects and the industry that produced them. This lecture is sponsored by the Boshell Family Lecture Series on Archaeology.
