Coming to L.A. this summer? Interested in Persian rugs?

The 16th Century "Ardabil Carpet" from the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be displayed for only the fifth time in more than 45 years until Labor Day.

"Specialists regard the Ardabil Carpet to be one of the two greatest Persian rugs ever woven. The other is its matching twin, now in the collection of London's Victoria and Albert Museum.... and LACMA's is often regarded as the finer of the two."
