His other favorite piece is one that fascinates him because of the mystery behind it. It is a grand carpet with Persian knotting. Displaying a field of flowers and pieced together like patchwork. He has no idea where it comes from, or even how old it is. He explains that although he has shown it to other experts, they are also just as puzzled. Nazmiyal has referred to this piece as the, “mystery rug”  Due to the puzzling nature of this piece, it has made it challenging for Nazmiyal to place a price on.
