Lost Dhow

April 15, 2015

There’s a wonderful exhibit at the new Aga Khan Museum. The lost dhow was an ancient sailing ship that sank in the Java Sea off Indonesia’s Belitung Island. There are thousands of artefacts from a time when there was a strong trade link between China and the Islamic world.

The artefacts are mostly in pristine condition and are spectacular. The exhibit closes soon, so hurry if you plan to visit.
