As Shah Tahmasp himself gradually became more interested in spiritual matters and moved away from art, the Safavid style was patronized by other members of the royal family and the court.
It was also disseminated to commercial artists through the artistic centers of the empire, as the Safavid capital was moved from Tabriz to Qazvin, located on the east-west trade route leading from India in the east and Anatolia in the west.
The exhibition draws its title from notions of paradise and its image as a garden, the journey of the faithful to a heavenly world and the effort by the Safavid court to evoke a secular parallel equivalent through the depiction of the garden.

The phrase used, however, suggests that Maqsud was not a craftsman.19 He is more likely to have been a donor, or perhaps a high official of Tahmasp's court or govern-ment, or of the shrine.
That the carpets were at Ardabil, occupying at least one of these spaces, is confirmed by two 19th century eyewitnesses and by the 18th century inventories of the shrine.
Moreover there is persuasive evidence that the two carpets, dated 1539/40, were originally made to measure for Shah Tahmasp's imporlant new building at the shrine, which was nearing completion at that date.
