intertextual linkage.Therefore, and based on carried out investigations in Safavid period, we selected 20
carpets and 46 paintings,and finally we randomly selected 5 samples out of each group for analysis then
we tried to confirm the hypothesis having structuralistic and intertextuasl orientation. . The results showed
that the composition of Persian gardens in the Safavid paintings and garden carpets was derived from the
Chahar Bagh pattern with the emphasis on the centrality of dock, water distribution network, symmetry,
naturalism, harmony of elements of the garden and the separation of spaces. existingExisting viewing
