    With its vividly colored pattern of stars and octagons, this rug exemplifies the distinctive "Holbein" carpets that were produced in great numbers during the fifteenth century in the Spanish province of Murcia. Illustrated in paintings by Hans Holbein the Younger as well as other artists, these carpets—Spanish adaptations of Turkish designs—found a ready market among Christian patrons.
