Who Is the Real Artist?
Who is the real artist. Pablo or Neda? Pablo painted and Neda weaves. Pablo used brushes and canvases. Neda uses yarn, knots and looms.
This painting was sold in Christie's of New York in May 2010 for $106 million. Would it sell even a $million if the painter was not Pablo Picasso? Then if we consider good rugs as art which they really are, why rugs aren't that expensive at all?
Mashad Saber carpet 9' x 12' with 9,000,000 knots. The foundation is natural silk and the pile is combination of pure natural silk and baby lamb's wool. It took 2 weavers 4 years to make this masterpiece.
