Rugs are a highly valued tradition in Persia dating to ancient times. They symbolize the place where Heaven meets Earth. In effect, a beautiful rug provides the owner with a link to Heaven.
Faz developed an intimate and intuitive relationship with rug design and weaving from childhood. In recent years, the focus of her scholarship has been to identify the symbols of Nature and how they have influenced Mideast culture, architecture and urban design.
Both early years as a girl and recent years as a scholar converge for Faz and express themselves in vivid colors and floral forms – her artwork revealing how she views Nature, Heaven and their relationships with the human experience.
