The 8 day cultural trip to Iran - "Iranian Treasures" - (Day 2 morning) The Tehran Carpet Museum (cont.) - The 17th of September 2014


To thoroughly admire the huge amount of artistic carpets in display  a lot more time would have been required, but despite those constraints I still managed to photograph quite a few that seem to have caught my attention as I strolled along the galleries.

I must confess I loved this first visit, which set the tone for the ones to follow. I was definitely taken by the beauty and weaving mastery displayed.
