Paradise is a garden. This is a recurring theme in Persian poetry and literature and it is the organizing symbolism in this carpet woven in India. The architectonic vertical and horizontal axes are schematic representations of waterways that course through a verdant garden with a fountain at their intersection, here have rendered as a small medallion. These rivulets contain abstract images of fish and a graphic visual texture of ripples on water. Stylized willows line the canals and a series of cypresses form the border, encircling the garden in a noble expression of architecture and nature in a single carpet.
Subtle camel tones fill the quartered field with deep indigo edges and harmonious highlights of beige and slate gray.
