Quote – The Blood of Flowers – Anita Amirrezvani

“I will never inscribe my name in a carpet, unlike the masters in the royal rug workshop who are honoured for their great skill. I will never learn to knot a man’s eye so precisely it looks real, nor design rugs with layers of patterns so intricate that they could confound the greatest of mathematicians. But I have devised designs for my own which people will cherish for years to come. When they sit on one of my carpets, their hips touching the earth, their back elongated, and the crown of their head lifted towards the sky, they will be soothed, refreshed, transformed. My heart will touch theirs and we will be as one, even after I am dust even though they will never know my name.”
