Such a wide variety!
I have never seen a picture of Cyrus, and it's nice to see him here, holding hands with his wife.

Rita said...

So beautiful, and so skillfully made!

The pictorial ones are incredible but for me its got to be a traditional silk one like the ones in the 2nd last photo.

I had no idea they came in such an amazing variety. I like the Isfahani style best. Simple, elegant.

Dear Sarah, yesterday I got such a great surprise. Just by chance I looked inside the lobby of a big public building. Hundreds of Persian carpets were all over! Not just on the floor, but hanging on the walls and from railings and draped on benches and on the stairs!
Apparently they will be offered for sale at a huge auction on July 29.
I took a beautiful free booklet and now I am studying it in order to post about the carpets. They are from a big company started by a man born in Isfahan who moved here in 1963.
I never realized that the geometric designs in the carpets are symbols. The booklet tells 20 different meanings for the symbols. Wow! So they have meaning, and not only beauty!
I only wish that you could see the pictures I will post. Not an easy situation.

Sarah, please come visit my new post about Persian carpets.

Sarah, you'll see, Dina was thinking of you. It's wonderful.

Hi Sarah,
My childhood neighbor was an Iranian born woman who had the most beautiful handmade Persian carpet in her family's living room. She also had beautiful art all around. Her lovely home was my first exposure to museum-quality art. She had a great understanding of antiquities and very educated tastes. Now I am wondering if she studied at your university :-). Missing you and hope you are well and that your studies are going well, too.
