Post on an Interesting Tibetan Rug
Dear folks –
I know Daniel Miller (the student of Tibetan rugs and the folks who have made them) in a glancing way. Although peripatetic in the extreme, Dan owned (and may still) a home, here in the DC area about two miles from where I write, and we persuaded him, a few years ago, to give a TM “rug morning” program on his Tibetan horse cover collection.
Dan recently wrote a book on Tibetan rugs, about which I’ll say more, in the post I’m announcing here.
About the latter: Dan wrote me this week, with images of a Tibetan rug which when viewed from a particular perspective, exhibits a distinctive and mysterious visual effect.
Dan said he’d not see this kind of thing before, was not sure why it occurred, and wondered whether I’d show it to my readers and ask whether others have had, or have seen, rugs, that produce similar effects. Also, proposals about why they do so.
You know the expression “seeing new things” in a rug. This piece gives it real, concrete meaning.

It will take you to the “about” page on my Eccentric Wefts blog. The post being announced is the first one in the column at the right in red type.
I do not permit direct comments on this blog, nor do I, usually, particularly encourage any. But, in this case, Dan and I are explicitly soliciting them and provide our email addresses in the post itself for that purpose.
Hope you enjoy this post about a seeming, odd phenomenon.
