Miniature Islamic Stone Lion, used for weight measurement. ca. 1100 - 1300 CE. Curly mane with wide expressive eyes. Geometric design on bottom. In excellent condition. 3/4" x 1" x 1/2". Ex: S. Beiner collection, Florida. In Islamic art high levels of achievement were reached in other materials, including hardstone carvings and jewelry, ivory carving, textiles and leatherwork. During the Middle Ages, Islamic work in these fields was highly valued in other parts of the world and often traded outside the Islamic zone.
