Arts of the Muslim Knight by Bashir Mohamed
Book DescriptionThis work offers a detailed and spectacular overview of the arms and armours of the Collection of the Furusiyya Art Foundation. It is an invaluable contribution to the historical study of Islamic arms and material culture. The furusiyya is a whole of practical and theoretical knowledge related to the horse: horsemanship, hippology, veterinary medicine and art of warfa. It includes/understands also the disciplines of the fauconnery, the archery, the handling of the weapons, the fight, swimming and the set of failures, all considered as art of warfares. The Furusiyya Art Foundation's project of collecting artefacts and arms and armours relating to the arts of the Muslim fata or chevalier, commenced a little over a quarter of a century ago. Starting with a modest collection of white arms, the collection of the arts of the Muslim chevalier now numbers slightly over a thousand pieces spanning the 8th to the 18th centuries, with an accent on the early periods.
