Goodbye Ardabil Carpet

The famous Ardabil carpet will be on display until September 5, 2011 in LACMA Los Angeles County Museum of Art. I encourage everyone who can to visit this magnificent carpet before it is removed from the display and put is rest in a tube in vacuum in the treasure basement of the museum for another few years.

I have visited this rug 4 times this past few weeks and each time I enjoyed seeing it even more. It is strange because every time I go to visit the Ardabil carpet, I would like to take pictures. Usually the security guards say you cannot use flash. This time, the guard who was very strict said you cannot take pictures at all!
