Tree of Life
Much of the significance may not be attributed to ancient symbolism, which is depicted in many carpet designs; but at the same time, one cannot be dubious of the fact that there are decidedly religious and mythological ideas having a great influence on carpet art. The tree of life design represents the connecting link between the three world levels of ancient Orient: 1) Paradise (in the sky), 2) the world of men (on Earth), and 3) the world below. It is a myth that in the sky above they all were united by a great axis running vertically through the center. The idea of depicting the world axis as a tree is very important as well as ancient and is found in many other arts, besides carpets (of course, in European as well as oriental mythology). But one must always remember that with oriental mythology, the language of Symbolism is many-layered and chequered. The universal appeal of tree of life "design", or any other design, depends in purely aesthetic consideration of the suitability of motif in the given design situation as also the degree of technical accomplishment in its perfect execution. The tree of life as world axis is by no means the only form of symbolic tree encountered in ancient art. can find countless examples of trees in carpet designs with religious associations. Awareness of possible mythological implications in tree design needs, however, to be balanced by the knowledge that much of Persia is stony Desert -; this alone should be a sufficient reason why carpet designs should so often be filled with flowers and trees.
