Virtual Museum of Islamic Art

This is somewhat out of the scope of this blog, but I thought it might be of interest to some visitors. Al Ahram Weekly has an article about the launch of an online virtual museum of Islamic art from around the Mediterranean, called "Hawass sees Discover Islamic Art as the richest website available to those who are interested in collecting information on Islamic civilisation. It also serves as a professional source for students and travellers who wish to explore the cultural heritage of a country renowned for its splendid ancient civilisations. Despite still being in its infant phase, the site has amassed an incredible number of hits and has been highlighted in newspapers and magazines around the world".
