Danny Mehra presents CARPET STORIES 4, an exhibition and sale of rare tribal carpets from his personal collection, on September 3rd, 4th and 5th from 10am to 7pm.
Danny will be giving a short talk on all 3 days at 12 noon on mysterious symbols and icons found on old carpets, and a live demonstration on antique carpet conservation. We hope to see you there!
Tribal carpets are almost the opposite of what one may visualise when they think of a carpet. They are abstract. They are spontaneous. They are naive. They break rules. And most of all, they are personal expressions of the weavers, straight from the heart. The end product is a visual story, full of icons and expressions. Flowers. Plants. Birds. Animals. Human figures. Mythical objects. Shamanistic symbols.
Join us at CARPET STORIES 4, you will find many things that will put a smile on your face through an art form that you may not have experienced or explored before.
