Medieval Ivory Carvings: Early Christian to Romanesque


      • Product Description: The V&A's collection of ivory carvings c.400-1200 is one of the most important in the world. This beautifully illustrated catalogue consists of 120 entries that discuss in detail many of the most celebrated ivories of the Middle Ages. Major masterpieces from every era of the period include the Symmachi Panel from Late Antiquity; the front cover of the Lorsch Gospels from the Carolingian era; the Ottonian Basilewsky Situla; the Veroli Casket from tenth-century Byzantium; the St Nicholas Crozier; the enigmatic whalebone carving of the Adoration of the Magi from the Romanesque twelfth century; and numerous others of the first importance and beauty.
