Spherical astrolabe, Islamic, 1480-1481. Artist: Werner Forman

Spherical astrolabe, Islamic, 1480-1481. Made from brass with damascened and laminated silver, this is the only complete example of a spherical astrolabe. It is signed Work of Musa Year 885. From the style of the kufic script and the system of numbers used it is certain that this was made in the eastern part of the Islamic world, possibly India. From the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford
