UNDERSTANDING WORLD CULTURES: Antique Eastern Prayer Rugs

May 12 @ 11:00 am - July 23 @ 4:00 pm

Prayer rug design emerged early in the history of Islam.   It is usually a small rug used to kneel on during prayer.  However, the design of these rugs developed into a popular genre of carpet.   Learn about them and the culture that inspired them.   Prayer rugs displayed will be from the museum’s collection, as well as on loan from Peter Pap Oriental Rugs of Dublin, New Hampshire.
