DALLAS (AP) - A new exhibit in Dallas showcases 150 rare Islamic works of art and scientific objects that explore the use and meaning of light.

The exhibit titled “Nur: Light in Art and Science from the Islamic World” opened over the weekend at the Dallas Museum of Art. Nur is the Arabic word for light.

The Dallas Museum of Art will be the only venue outside of Europe to host the exhibit, which premiered in Spain in October. It runs in Dallas through June 29.

The works on display come from public and private collections around the world. Objects on display include manuscripts illuminated with gold and color pigments and objects made from precious and semi-precious stones in addition to scientific objects including sundials and astrolabes.
