Why do we have this craving for beauty?
It would have been simpler - and the rugs just as useful -
to leave the wool
To weave solid colors, or simple stripes.
But since the beginning, handmade carpets
have been adorned with clouds and
hunting scenes, ladders, medallions, niches for prayer.
What makes us human?
