I really dig this Doubts carpet by Azerbaijani contemporary artist, Faig Ahmed. I mean, the carpet is literally oozing on the floor! I want one.
All of his works are inspired by an influential leader. This carpet was inspired by Tabrizi, who was Rumi’s mentor. It “gradually dissolve(s) into a black woolen space of nothingness, much like the final stages of a mystic’s spiritual journey: annihilation (fana’) of one’s individual ego within the divine presence, like the flame of a candle in the presence of the sun.”
Faig is represented by Sapar Contemporary.
