This design is inspired by a carpet in the Berlin Museum of
Islamic Art collection. It is characterized by a pointed
niche and the "re-entrant keyhole" figure. This version,
commissioned by Andrea Pacciani, is 49"x70", similar in scale to
the original. However, by varying the knot count slightly, this
carpet also could be made in sizes ranging from 41"x58"
to 70"x98". This carpet was woven in Afyon by
Akile Ak-Zehra Yuksel and completed
in November of 2008, from a design prepared by Christopher Robin
Andrews, production directed by I. Tekin, overseen by Karakus,
yarns dyed by Mustafa, washed by Abdurrahman and
Abdullah, with finish shearing by Saban.
