The unique art project quickly went viral after Selva posted the pictures of the carved floor rug onto the internet! Afterwards Selva discussed the meaning behind the unique rug carving. She stated that the artwork expresses her childhood trauma, and that the mental scars that she received are as real as the carvings.

Selva designed the hand carved rug to look like a traditional Persian rug, and even has the fringe strings on the end of the rug randomly and carelessly placed randomly just like you'd find on a real rug. Some of the strings even come back onto the rug as if it was carelessly placed onto the floor.
