Dear participants,

The perspective subject I'm dealing with, doesn't seem to bother a lot of people. I do agree my findings aren't world shocking events. But I do see a lot of copies of old rugs around. Why buy an old (expensive) rug if the copy is o.k.? It bothers me the copies aren't o.k. They seem to lack elongation and therefor perspective and more disturbing, the copies aren't elongated but compressed. So the perspective is lost and we're looking at rugs upside down.

I made this simple black and white drawing. I prefer the rug at the top.

To conclude this, I think this mosaic floor from 450 A.C. makes a nice puzzle. (I gave the three designs a different color, in order to find the way the design was created). A weaver working with stone and very creative.

All the treads are passing under or over. This creates perspective under your feet.

I hope 2001 will bring about peace, good health and happiness for all.

Best regards,
