Tabriz Palace Carpet
L MEM 1 Tabriz Palace Carpet (detail).

This small section of the stunning Tabriz Palace Carpet that graces the library's Memorial Room depicts the major design elements found in it.  Measuring a magnificent  11  x 5.3 meters the carpet features a midnight blue field with an allover pattern of interlaced bands, flowering plants, flower filled vases, perched birds and cloud bands, within a conforming floral border and guards.   Its tremendous size combined with its breathtaking beauty truly makes this a "magic" carpet!
