"About the time I turned 40, one of my cousins was looking into our family history. We did not know much about the family history as our parents were orphaned at young age. In her research, she traced our family to the Basque people of Spain. I decided to read a bit about this region and came upon a book of fairy tales which inspired me to draw the fanciful rug, which I hooked in my favorite colors. It is my favorite rug."
- Michele Micarelli, Celebration Hall of Fame 2018
