Book Description
This publication traces and analyses the art of the oriental carpet ove a period of two and a half thousand years. The author`s research has resulted in completely new contextual insights amounting to nothing less than a revision of the history of the oriental carpet. He has been able to trace patterns bck to Phrygian and other traditions, which survived in the work of Armenian craftsmen up to the beginning of our own century: carpets as symbols of power and as deeply religious abstract textile icons.
