    An exhibition of Omani arts, ranging from silverware and ornate daggers to jewellery and model dhows, is being staged in London as part of the three-month long "World Islam" festival in Britain. The festival, aimed at advancing an understanding of the concepts of the Islamic religion through an understanding of its art, was opened in April by Queen Elizabeth and closes in July. More than 2,500 works of Islamic art from the Far East, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, are on display at various exhibitions in British towns and cities. The two million pound sterling festival is the biggest exhibition of Islamic art and culture ever staged in Europe. Oman, a sparsely-populated Middle-Eastern Sultanate on the southern border of Saudi Arabia, was one of the first countries to embrace the concept of Islam during the lifetime of the prophet Mohammed.
