Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

From the 17th century, ajami decoration was prevalent in the interior adornment of the houses of Damascene merchants and notables. This study, done from the stylistic, historical - as well as the technical, points of view, has resulted in a unique and valuable document on the history of Damascus decoration.
