Pictorial carpets range from super-realist portraits to glorious historical scenes like the conquests of Darius or a 6th century slice-of-life landscape. Some are original creations while others are striking interpretations of museum collections. Carpets depicting events or places have been around for decades and are among some of the valuable pieces often sought after, for exhibitions and museums.
