You said you loved Persian Rugs?



3500 square meters (~38000 sqr ft) of Persian rugs and kilims covered the plains of Shahdad in Iran's Kerman province as part of filming a documentary about the the province of Kerman in Iran. The film covers various aspects of Kerman including history, nature and art.

The rugs motifs are varied. The medalion rugs indicate a vision of the creation - a center indicated by "+" which symbolizez the estoeric "Center" which is God. From that center the patterns exapnd with more and more complexity - indicating the entire Manifestation - the Universe emanating from the "Center".

The vegetation motif indicates a garden - A Persian (Muslim) garden which creates a protected space against the outside full of beauty and order. This (Muslim/Persian) Garden - Pardis - Paradiso - is the vision of Paradise on Earth.

The motif of hunt is - to my knowledge - devoid of religious meaning - it is a celeberation of hunting and other manly activities.

There is more to rugs - farsh - in that they also symbolize sanctified area - just like the Prophet made the Earth sanctified by his presence.

Much more...
