Tomorrow, Monday Jan. 18, 2010 is the last day of Ardabil and Coronation carpets on display in Los Angels County Museum of Art LACMA. Today is Sunday and I will go to work from 12:00 to 4:00 pm. I am planning to pay my last visit to these two masterpieces and say goodbye to them. It is unknown when LACMA puts these two rugs on display again. Maybe in 5 years, 10 years; who knows when?
I was lucky to visit twice the Ardabil carpet and the Coronation carpet in November and December 2009. They looked great on their temporary platform in LACMA.
