This bookmark from Malaysia shows an Indian dagger. The hilt is made of jade, inlaid with gemstones:

The bookmark comes from the Islamic Arts Museum of Malaysia…


…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.
