King Solomon's Magical Carpet

For sale

$7,000

Legend has it that Queen of Sheba gifted King Solomon with a magical flying carpet. I took liberty with this legend, and combining it with the fact that King Solomon had a thousand wives of various religions, decided to create an Arabian Nights version combining Jewish and Islamic motifs.

​This jewel-like piece positively glows. The colors are rich and vibrant. The high level of detail and embellishment provides new surprises every time it is viewed.

​The "carpet" layout is reminiscent of Muslim prayer rugs and includes the images of the Tree of Life, a bird, pomegranates and boteh (paisley).


Hand dyed and commercial fabrics. Fused and hand applique. Machine quilting and embroidery. Hand embroidery and beading.
