M. Carey Thomas, the first Dean and second President of Bryn Mawr College, lived in the Deanery from 1885 to 1933. She and her partner, Mary Elizabeth Garrett, who lived with her in the Deanery from 1904-1915, traveled extensively and collected art and furniture from around the world, particularly from Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries.

This metal tray is one of the many works of religious art that were purchased to decorate the Deanery, which together represent many of the major world religions (including Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam). The central scene on the tray depicts Adam and Eve, with surrounding inscriptions in Arabic that reference other narratives found in the Abrahamic textual traditions.
