LACMA ROLLS OUT MAGICAL ARDABIL CARPET
Rare 16th Ardabil Carpet on Display at LACMA
This amazing carpet, the center piece to the "Gifts of the Sultan: The Arts of Giving at the Islamic Courts", is on display until Labor Day, 2011. One of the two greatest Persian carpets ever woven (its twin is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London), this is only the 5th time it has been shown since its debut in 1965. Don't miss this chance to view a true "magic" carpet as well as the stunning display of Islamic art in the rest of the exhibition.
