The carpet contains patterns of headless people moving blindly in different directions, trying to find their heads. We do not see their heads. Symbolically, a human without a head represents the idea of ignorance. A person does not realize what is happening, what it is they are doing, why they are going somewhere, where they are going, and what they are searching for. Life passes by and vanishes in senseless search. Reaching no result, a person dies, without even realizing where they were going during their entire life.
