  • Al Misik: Agarwood (Gaharu) Tasbih

    RM690.00

    This Tasbih is made from the rare and expensive Agarwood.

     

    Agarwood (Kayu Gaharu) is a fragrant wood that is one of the most expensive raw materials in the world.

     

    The Aquilaria malaccensis is a tree native to the rainforests of southeast Asia. When healthy, the heartwood inside these trees are pale, odorless, and worthless. In the wild rainforests though, the tree bark may be damaged by external forces, such as grazing animals and under perfect conditions, a type of fungus called Phialophora parasitica grows and infects the inside of the tree.

     

    In defense, the tree produces a stress-induced aromatic resin called aloes, which is dark and moist and over years, the aloes slowly embed into the heartwood to create agarwood.

     

    It can also be caused by ants burrowing into the tree trunk, wounding it and bringing microorganisms, bacteria and fungual spores into it. The ant secretes a liquid that damages the tree and the tree uses its own sap to seal the wound. In time, this sealed wound turns into agarwood.

     

    It takes an expert to know whether the Aquilaria has been infected and has agarwood (gaharu) inside. Then it takes hours of painstaking effort to carve the resin-infused agarwood chips from the healthy trunk. These trees are now a rare find hence its exhorbitant price.

  • Al-Tibb: Healing Traditions in Islamic Medical Manuscripts

    RM120.00

    Summary:

    The search for knowledge has always been central to the Islamic worldview. Combined with the universal quest for good health, this has had a decisive effect on the development of medical literacy in the Islamic tradition. Cities such as Baghdad and Granada grew into nuclei of learning that preserved and promoted scientific knowledge. Out of this fertile landscape emerged some of the greatest thinkers and innovators in the history of mankind; their theories and formulas have influenced the world for centuries. The exhibition, Al-Tibb:  Healing Traditions in Islamic Medical Manuscripts is a pioneering compilation of milestones along this path from the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia collection. Essays by curators and scholars supplement the selection of manuscripts and accompanying objects to provide a comprehensive approach. Anatomy and physiology, divination, pathology, pharmacy and veterinary science are brought together with Malay healing traditions and Prophetic medicine to give an unprecedented breadth to a field that is as fascinating as it is important.
