The burning lamp motif, which symbolizes the continuous presence of religious cult, is also a common element in this design. The intricate details and the use of different colors make this rug unique and beautiful. The use of the niche or mihrab and the lamp motif as a decor, highlights the religious significance of the rug and it is a testament to the skill and artistry of the craftspeople of Heris.
