OK, My first thought and question
I was browsing through the online exhibit on the Freer and Sackler Galleries website last night and began to wonder why artists in the Middle East use cobalt blue so much in their artwork. Is there some significance in using the color blue? Did it have any special meaning to Islam? I hope that during my research on the caliphates that I will be able to find the answer.
