The Figure in the Carpet

Golden threads, sinuous lines and strange reliefs constitute the ornament of the Atlantis carpet. At first glance, its pixellated pattern seems abstract, but a patient observer will cease „the figure in the carpet“ and recognize the shape of melted trophies.


As if plunging in the water, one discovers the vestiges of forgotten triumphs, the prestiges of an enigmatic civilisation, lost at the bottom of the sea. With this handwoven rug, the tale of Atlantis, once again, comes to life — under you feet.
