Oriental Art

The artefacts exhibited present a particular aspect of Polish heritage and artistic taste, shaped as a result of military and trade contacts with Near East countries. Thanks to these contacts, Poland was permeated by art works from Turkey, the Crimea, the Caucasus and Iran - carpets, silks, tapestries, weapons and armoury, ceremonial horse saddles and equestrian equipment which eventually became items of everyday and ceremonial use by noblemen and the royal court.
