This striking wool scarf is inspired by a cotton-and-wool carpet in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. Depictions of such Persian gardens in carpets generally combine a bird's-eye view of a classic four-part garden with a profile of birds and trees. This particular carpet, made in Kurdistan during the second half of the 18th century, bears the traditional pattern of a garden enclosure divided into rectangular plots, with water in canals suggested by parallel stripes.
