Description: Sculpture has been little developed in the islamic world. There is, however, a form of small-scale sculpture as seen in furniture objects. This lion, engraved copper alloy, perforated to allow the perfume of the aromatic resins to escape, seems at rest on curiously bent legs almost losing its balance. The stylisation of the moustaches, ears, the bent tail and the network of decoration on the body give a certain charm to the object.
