Still LIfe with Red Carpet (also known as Oriental Rugs)
Henri Matisse - 1906
Glazed bricks with a palmette motif from the ancient city of Susa dating back to the Achaemenid period in the 5th-4th century BCE. The bricks and motif are a trademark of ancient Babylon and can still be seen today on the walls of Ishtar Gate. When the Achaemenids made Babylon their royal capital, its famous glazed bricks and decorative motifs served as a model for the whole empire including the city of Susa.
