Title: Al-Mizan     
Description: Al-Mizan is the Arabic word for balance. This exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University explores the connections between the sciences and arts in Muslim societies. It presents highlights from the Museum's collection of Islamic scientific instruments alongside medieval manuscripts, metalwork and ceramics on loan from other major collections. The links between scientific inquiry and artistic beauty are vividly revealed through the decorative and practical work of the craftsman.
