Azerbaijan's carpet museum

I had a tour of the carpet museum in Baku housed in what was once a Communist headquarters of something. The tour showed a wide variety of styles and the hostess seemed to be pretty beleaguered  right ouf ot the old Politburo playbook but the actual carpets showed a lot about the history and culture of this country.
  I am fascinated with the Zoroastrian roots of the region and am always looking for its reflections in the local art.
