'The rise of Islamic art offers - through the diversity of the works presented - the necessary clues to a better understanding of the Umayyad culture. This culture represents the emergence of an innovative artistic language where the subtle crossbreeding of the Aramean, Hellensitic, Roman, Byantine, and Persian influences yield a new architectural and decorative order in which the foundations for the birth of the Islamic art would be laid.'
