Many of these objects display an influence from the Chinese culture with typical decorations inspired from the Chinese Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). (...) These specific decorations were practised across Asia over the course of the Middle Ages, and testify to an active process of cultural exchanges. (...) For instance, the patterns of dragons and phoenixes on the gold decorations plaques are extremely similar to decorations of Scythian origin; and, a gilt bronze crown found in the Fukinoki tomb looks like a crown discovered in Tillya Tepe, Bactria (North of modern Afghanistan).

Limited in religious symbolic forms like “mihrab”, minaret and calligraphy as decoration, Muslims adapted functions and gave a new dimension to their architectural and ornamental tradition. (...) In general terms, the technics of Muslim architecture in the beginning were confined to primary forms, though delightful shapes and geometrical decorations were fervently employed. The decorative art was further embellished with script and arabesque ornamentation and inter-twined bands. (...) These monuments represent a unique aspect of the long and rich cultural heritage of Sind and a remarkable contribution to the history of decorative arts.

Its fame rests principally on the impact of its lavish decoration, the extent and artistry of which are incomparable.

ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL, 13TH SESSION, 481ST (OPENING) MEETING, HELD AT THE PALAIS DES NATIONS, GENEVA, ON MONDAY, 30 JULY 1951
Some had sent marble, panelling, fur­ niture, paintings; others had each undertaken the decoration of a room. Spain had offered to decorate the Council Room, and the Spanish Government had asked that it do honour to the great personality of Fra Francisco de Vitoria, the true founder of international law, who, from his professsorial chair at Salamanca in the 16th century, had maintained, in the face of the might of absolute monarchs, the fundamental principles of a world wide international law inspired by the noble concepts of justice and peace. (...) The frescoes had been executed on cloth in Sert’s studios in Paris, and then been transported to Geneva and E/SR.481 re-mounted on the spot. The decoration was treated in a kind of double monochrome, which, with its greys, giving the illusion of hfe, and its golds painted over with dark brown, had a very sumptuous effect. (...) Why, then, asked Sert, should mankind not conquer war by destroying weapons of war (decoration on the left towards the window). He could attain that end by taking inspiration from “ The Lesson of Sala­ manca ” , the subject of the fresco on the ceiling of the Council Room.
