In the 19th and 20th centeries, it was fashinable in Iran to have Kerman carpets with designs taken from European sources.the design of this carpet was based on a Louis XIV, Gobelins tapestry from the series ‘les sujetsdelaFable’ after the drawings by Raphael(1500). woven on three separate occasions for luis XIV, between 1685 -1704, the scene depicts ‘la Danse d’ une nymphe,dela droite’ showing pormona with Vertumnus in the guise of a faun, playing the pipes of the fertility god, Pan, and seated next to a pinth supporting a vase with festive putti overhead aa in a verdant landscape evoking Arcadia, the idyllic home of Pan.

Acopy of this tapestry hung in the public room at the golestan Palace, Tehran.
