This stunning carpet is one of several works by Azerbaijanian artist Faig Ahmed, whose work, “explores [the] composition of a traditional Azerbaijanian carpet by disjointing its structure and placing its canonic elements into open space.”

Carpet is more a time structure than a graphical one. Initially it was considered as a sophisticated sort of writing rather than a mere decorative piece. And to read those written signs is a temporal process. By separating those signs and symbols Faiq switches the carpet from two-dimensional plane to three-dimensional space where it comes to life.
