This box, known as the "Morgan casket," is one of the most accomplished Islamic works of art in ivory created sometime between the 11th and 12th centuries. Even though it was probably produced in southern Italy, the animals enclosed in the interlacing vine are similar in style and iconography to contemporaneous Fatimid art from Egypt. Sicily was under Muslim rule for almost three centuries, which explains the Islamic influence on the works produced there in medieval times. Today this casket is located in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
