: Is it just me or is it ironic Eagleton would collect a rug whose central focal point was two symbolic white ground bird figures with highly stylized anthropomorphic vestiges roughly in a fetal position within the birds. Of course those white ground bird figures might actually be Mederterranian octupii in a garden in the shade, but they would be warm beneath the waves dancing over their heads. Could these enigmatic figures also point a finger Eastward towards perhaps some sedentary wayfaring nomads holed up in a Persian village or town in need of a job. It is interesting that the border is clearly related to the Muyer-Muller but later. Jim Allen

Jim : I think it is just you. Sedentary wayfaring nomads? But why don't you ask Eagleton himself. I called and alerted him to this discussion last night. His e-mail is Check out Charles Grant Ellis and Daniel Walker if you want to read about Mogul, Indian, Persian cross over influences. There is alot of information out there. Michael Wendorf
