↑ Aha! The sugary Moravian Freemason! (Thanks Wikipedia… :oops: ) But even for an "illustrator", once his work is on an umbrella, it becomes:

Just because an objet trouvé composer was placed by a smartass makes it no less truly ARTTM. :coolspecs:

Scraping reddit again, are we? :twisted:

As most old Oriental carpets have of course disappeared, their representation on paintings interests historians of the subject a lot, e. g. by the Flemish Masters:

(unknown master)

Now the oldest surviving carpet (ca. 2400 years old) comes presumably from the Pazyryk burials:

(note that some internal anatomy seems to be represented)

(Scythian warriors?)
Wikipedia wrote:Pazyryk carpet

One of the most famous finds at Pazyryk is the Pazyryk carpet, which is probably the oldest surviving carpet in the world. It measures 183×200 cm and has a knot density of approximately 360 000 knots per square meter, which is a higher knot density than most modern carpets. The middle of the carpet consists of a ribbon motif, while in the border there is a procession with deers and in another border warriors on horses. The Pazyryk carpet was probably manufactured in East Turkistan around 400 B.C. When it was found it had been deeply frozen in a block of ice, which is why it is so well-preserved. The carpet can be seen at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
