Quincunx Carpet

I like this picture of a wall painting of Shah Abbas for the lattice -pattern or quincunx patterned carpet he kneels on. And the line of dancing girls at the front.

One version with extra watermark, one without.  I seem to have quite a number of poppy stamps (1998) from my cousin .The office is still half packed in boxes, half strewn in piles of paper, files and photos and making use of a hi-fi box as a table.

mock-ups -  encroaching bindweed / morning glory, nature on symbols of modernity, themselves now arguably outdated and all that...

Actual size version made using a sharper scalpel blade.
