Age of Discovery

Age of Discovery


Age of Discovery (8thCentury A.D. – 12thCentury A.D.): the main theme of this postcard is the high cultural milieu that characterized the early period of the Abbasid rule in the East and the Umayyad rule in Andalusia. The graphics reflect the scientific discoveries and inventions and the innovations in art, architecture, geography and music. The colour blue was chosen because of the blue lapis stone that started to be included in the architecture during this period. While the images of Idrissi’s world map, the astrolabe, and the mathematical development of algebra all are witnesses to an exceptional period of human genius.
