Short Description

This volume analyses for the first time the orient carpet by means of historical and aesthetical aspects. The author introduces five new issues on the orient carpet – which have been neglected so far – and provides an insight into its ornaments. He examines various patterns and their beginnings as well as the acceptance of orient carpets during the 20th century. The publication aims for a better understanding of one of the most fascinating objects of oriental art and is not restricted to specialists only.
