Exhibition: Paradise Garden: The Wagner Garden Carpet, Burrell Collection, Glasgow

February 11 @ 12:00 - August 16 @ 16:00

Included with museum admission

Slip into a lush, green garden teeming with life and discover for yourself why the word “paradise” comes from the Persian for “walled garden.” A masterpiece of Islamic art that rarely travels and is on display in Canada for the first time, this monumental carpet made in 17th-century Kirman, Iran, is one of the oldest surviving Persian garden carpets. It’s also one of the most unique, with a creative design and a bounty of birds, beasts, and blossoms that whisk the viewer into the centre of a luxuriant walled garden.
