Notes: 
Pictorial rugs are some of the most over-the-top examples of the artistry, talent and determination needed to design and construct a fine, everlasting carpet. Portraits of dignitaries, important officials and high-ranking people are also found in antique pictorial rugs. With the same token, weavers also choose to illustrate important scenes from history and literature. Typifying pomp and circumstance, this Kerman carpet features a royal portrait.
