2dc by Pierce Allen (RUG SAMPLE)
Rugs are the foundation for almost all design work. We are constantly looking for new ways to express that foundation. I travel extensively looking for designs and references. This particular pattern comes from the Borobudur temple in Java which I had visited thirty years ago when it was a ruin. Last year I went back and there had been extensive restoration. This pattern emerged in an area that had not been visible before.
