The images are very pertinent to us rug lovers. There is a close connection to Islamic art, architecture, design and understanding rug iconography. The arched entrances and the arches depicted with multiple tiles illustrate the arches on so-called prayer rugs - which aren't really "prayer rugs", but examples of Islamic architecture. I, for one, would love to see more of your images. The other suggestions about life in bazaars and medinas would also be welcome. Thank you, Manouchehr.
