Grateful Dead Rug

The Grateful Dead was the name Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann used to tour under while Jerry Garcia was alive, but now they are simply known as "The Dead". They were touring machines, reportedly putting on over 2,300 shows over 30 years while Garcia was alive. The Dead (original members plus the addition of Jeff Chimenti and Warren Haynes) recently played for 14 nights here in New York.

We didn't get the chance to attend, but we did notice what was lying under their feet as they rocked Manhattans' Gramercy Theater. The carpet appears to be a Persian panel Design which often feature design elements such as cypress trees and seasonal depictions.  The origin of this design is often attributed to very old rugs from tabriz, for which some suggest may have been the location of "The Garden of Eden".
