WALLACE CUNNINGHAM. It is most important to think about what objects you are choosing communicate, especially since you are creating a self portrait. Carpets can state something very personal about a person‘s history and interests, as well as making political and religious statements.
The rug, a beautiful and richly designed piece, is believed to have been made in Mongolia, featured a hand-knotting technique called Ghiordes that is still in use today. Even though it is argued by some historians that the first woven pile rugs were made in Mongolia, it is widely agreed that it is the Persians who perfected it.
I like it when a room looks as if it has evolved over time. I buy almost all of our antique carpets at auction because the mark-up at most rug dealers is really high!
