Rare Persian carpet sold for $33.7 million in New York City

This is a nominal 6x9 rug that is now the record holder for the highest dollar amount ever paid at auction for a hand-knotted oriental rug.
It's nice to see that REAL handmade rugs are demonstrating value to collectors commensurate with other fine quality artworks (at least insofar as such value is proven by international auction results.)
