This large European carpet measuring 545 × 510 cm (17′ 10″ × 16′ 8″) knotted around 1920 is in an admirable state of preservation. The decoration reinterprets the ancient Herat design which places a flower in the center of a rhombus at the opposite vertices of which identical flowers appear while on the sides rests the figure of a fish, which in some specimens looks more like a leaf or a feather. In this case the rhomboidal figure is only hinted at by the arrangement of the floral decorative elements. This sort of floral geometry is repeated in a modular way throughout the area of the carpet, creating an “infinite pattern” motif. The contrast of the white decorations revives the enveloping warmth of the background colour. The frame therefore delimits that area of infinity where I exist and my carpet is my home!
