Sobre este título:
In a perceptive curator's statement, Ellen Benson looks at the Silver Speaks exhibition and companion book as significant firsts in the continuum of the Society's and the Museum's longstanding interest in ethnic jewelry as manifested in earlier exhibits and educational programs. She seeks to foster appreciation of this silver folk jewelry by placing Middle Eastern traditions of personal adornment within the larger field of Islamic ornamentation and culture.
In the Introduction, Shelagh Weir, former curator at the British Museum and presently a Senior Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, focuses on the many functions this jewelry once had in the lives of women in the Middle East, where it could proclaim a woman's marital status, assert her ethnic identity, display her family's wealth, providing her financial security, enhance her feminine allure, promote her health, and protect her from misfortune. In two textual contributions, Robert Liu covers tools, materials, and techniques used by Middle Eastern silversmiths and examines recurring shapes and patterns in traditional silver jewelry and the meanings of these motifs.
