One of the most ancient pile carpets in the world, ca. 400 BC, Pazyryk. This carpet has 3600 symmetrical double knots per cm² (232 per inch²), in modern terminology also called "Turkish Knot"). The carpet shows great similarities to modern Turkmen carpets and carpets of the early Seljuq period. The numerical values of the carpet also show striking parallels to the Oghuz-legend, perhaps based on an older version of the Massageteans.
