(Persia Digest) – The handwoven carpet by Hossein Kazemi has been selected for the FIFA World Football Museum. The design of the carpet shows historic sites in Iran next to the Kremlin.
The carpet has been woven with four slightly different designs, three of which will be given to the Astan Qods Razavi Musuem in Mashhad, the Russian Football Union, and the Football Federation of Iran.
Hossein Kazemi has sent his handwoven carpets to the countries hosting the five previous World Cups as a symbol of Iranian culture.
“My aim is to introduce this traditional form of hand art and the Persian carpet to the world” said Kazemi.
