This carpet from the Santa Clara convent in Coimbra is one of the finest pieces in the collection. The design and motifs show the influences of Persian carpets from previous centuries. In the centre of a yellow ground, profusely decorated with large flower and cloud motifs, a radiant floral medallion in tones of green unfolds. The brown border is filled with spiraled coils of foliage, whilst the four corners present large stylized palmettes.
