      Islamic Calligraphy: When the Medium Really Was the Message

      ART REVIEW
      By HOLLAND COTTER

      There's no more stimulating patch of art turf in Manhattan than the
      Islamic wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It may not feel
      that way at first. Lights are low; visitors are few; silence
      prevails. But the sights ar e spectacular: flower-scattered Ottoman
      tiles, ivories from Andalusia, glinting North African goldwork and
      an entire 18th-century courtyard, marble floor and stained-glass
      windows intact, magic-carpeted in from Damascus.
