This carpet was designed and constructed by master carpet weavers from the Kerman District of Iran. Persian culture is world renowned for its textile artistry. This piece is known as a “pictorial carpet” or “rug tableau.” That is, it is designed to be hung on the wall (or laid on the floor). It is distinguished by a flower-like motif in the center that is extrapolated throughout in differing dimensions, rendering it stunningly attractive. The process of stylizing and preserving the form of such textiles requires a deep knowledge of craft as transmitted via oral tradition through centuries in Persian culture.
