This carpet was designed and constructed by master carpet weavers from the Kerman district, Islamic Republic of Iran. Persian culture is world renowned for its textile artistry. It is distinguished by a floral motif that is repeated and developed in geometrical symmetry throughout the carpet, rendering it stunningly attractive. 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). 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.
