Museum displays are normally organised by the curators who research and look after the collection.
However, no installation can be completed without a team of staff involving conservators, designers and curatorial assistants, the latter of whom are responsible for moving and installing the objects.
This display features a selection of works from the Islamic collections at the British Museum, hand-picked by the Middle East department’s curatorial assistant team and highlighting the theme of animals in Islamic art.
