Azerbaijani carpets displayed in Yekaterinburg
Carpet weaving is a central part of Azerbaijani culture dating back to approximately the second millennium BC. Azerbaijani rugs are highly valued around the world, and in November 2010, UNESCO declared the Azerbaijani carpet a Masterpiece of Intangible Heritage, News.az reports.
"The presentation of Azerbaijani carpets at the local history museum of Sverdlovsk is a great honor to us," head of the museum Natalya Vetroa said, according to News.az.
Yekaterinburg Azerbaijani Consulate General Sultan Gasimov said that high quality displays of Azerbaijani carpets are among the rarest exhibitions in museums around the world.
Azerbaijani carpets are classified under four different regional sub-groups - Guba-Shirvan, Ganja-Kazakh, Karabakh and Tabriz. Carpet weaving is an oral tradition passed down generation to generation, and the act of weaving is traditionally done by females within the extended family during the cold winter months.
