A 200 years old Persian carpet depicts portraits of 54 kings and world-renowned men from Moses and Confucius to Napoleon and George Washington.

After the mongol invasion and the European influences, Persians understood that it is better to not be good muslims!

what do you mean by that Cyrus?

Persians are still good muslims (majority of them) although i agree if this work (with pictures of Prophets etc) would be considered unislamic and heretical -

however i can recognise some of the following; Ghengis Khan, Napoleon, Tamerlane, King Louis, Washington, King Solomon, Prophet Jesus, Prophet Moses, Prophet Muhammed??, and i think Darius, Cyrus, Colombus, Heraclias?

interesting work
