Magic carpets of Azerbaijani artist (PHOTO)
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 14
The Guardian posted an article dedicated to Faig Ahmed, an Azerbaijani artist doing remarkable things with carpets.
Unlike traditional floor rugs, Ahmed’s rugs are intended to adorn walls – like the art form they are, said the article.
Ahmed’s carpet art – in which he distorts traditional designs – is coveted around Europe and the US (less so in Baku), where pieces sell for upwards of $15,000, according to the article.
