This bookmark from Malaysia shows an Indian dagger. The hilt is made of jade, inlaid with gemstones:
…which was officially opened on December 12, 1998 and houses more than seven thousand artefacts, as well has an exceptional library of Islamic-art books. The art objects on display range from the tiniest pieces of jewellery to one of the world’s largest scale models of the Masjid al-Haram mosque.
Thanks to Anis for sending me bookmarks from Malaysia.
