Woven Tapestry Fragment

Not on view

The overall pattern on this tapestry‑woven cloth, possibly a floor covering, with staggered rows of rosettes, resembles textiles depicted on the rock reliefs of the late sixth- to early seventh-century Sasanian monument at Taq‑i Bustan. On the basis of inscriptions on two closely related textiles, this fragment has been dated to the reign of the Umayyad caliph Marwan II (r. 744–49).
