By any measure, it's a marvel—as a work of art, as an article of devotion, as a testament to the richness of hand-made craftwork. But who's going to take it outside and beat it?     

In 2007 Authorities in Iran unveiled what they described as the world's largest hand-woven rug at Tehran's open-air prayer grounds.(See photo)

At 60,546 square feet (5,625 square meters), the carpet is the size of a soccer field and was woven by 1,200 weavers in three villages over the course of a year and a half.
