EXHIBIT FATIMID’S PLINTHS
CLIENT AGA KHAN MUSEUM
LOCATION TORONTO, ON
The World of Fatimids exhibition marks carefully selected collection of masterpieces from the Fatimid dynasty with objects that are monumental marble reliefs from the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo. It features luxury objects ranging from rock crystal and ivory to ceramic lusterware — a technique mastered during Fatimid times — and masterpieces of metalware.
Holman was acquired to build plinths and display cases to exhibit these rare beauties. Working with the AKM always requires precision, perfection and sleek finishes so that the cases and plinths almost disappear only leaving the focus on the artifacts and the visitor feeling transported to another time.
