On Vacation: Islamic Ceramics

A selection of photographs, mostly of ceramics, from the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art in the Keramikos neighborhood of Athens. The treasures of this museum are too little known except to specialists, but it is fortunately out of the way of the route of the average tourist.  I am not knowledgeable enough to label the pictures securely: enjoy their beauty.  (I will just add that they have the best gift shop of any Athens museum.)
