The rug that inspired our design was the first Scorpion to be
rediscovered in Transylvania. It has a rosette and meander
border. Formerly in the Evangelical Church of Richis, it
is now displayed in St. Margaret's Church in Medias. Our
infinite thanks to our friend and colleague, the carpet scholar Stefano Ionescu, for the use of this
photograph, from his book "Antique Ottoman Rugs in Transylvania (www.transylvanianrugs.com).
