Iran Creates World's Largest Sand Carpet

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian artists created the world's largest sand carpet from the colorful sand found on the country's southern island of Hormuz.



Some 25 visual artists used 70 types of colorful sand to create the 'Persian Gulf' sand carpet, which will be displayed on the island from Dec. 9 to 17, 2008.

According to press tv, the 12000-square-meter carpet is unique in magnitude, pattern and color and its title which shares the name of the forever Persian Gulf.

The previous sand carpet record belonged to 900-square-meter one created on the Canary Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Known for its beautiful red soil, Hormuz Island has witnessed numerous artistic events, including Iran's 15th Environmental Art Festival.
