Tapestry

Tapestry When I first started taking pictures of Persian carpets, I didn’t realize how great an undertaking this would be.  I didn’t realize that Persian carpets are not mere tapestries but they are poetry, folk tales and an art form passed down from generation to generation.  The deft hands create miniature gardens or tribal designs that provide the carpets, and those who enjoy them, with a specific purpose and identity.  My digital manipulation gives a modern twist to an ancient idea. 

Perisa 14 which was featured in the Snap 2018 Live Auction and is also the source of a blog post on Medium.com is actually a Turkish Heriz.  The blog is entitled Knots of Life.
