The Time Machine - Group 15

So for our project we need to look at the 'Persian Rug'.  Being an essential part of Persian art and culture. Carpet-weaving is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished manifestations of Persian culture and art, and dates back to ancient Persia. 550 B.C.E - 330 B.C.E. Here are a few images I have picked up on the object will be looking at: 
Fig 1 - Gold Persian Rug 

Fig2 Red Persian Rug

Interesting points I have found researching will be the 'Magic Carpet'  and the way these are weaved. These will be could to have a a starting point for us to collaborate on to meet the presentation in 5 weeks.
