Description

Beautiful shades of madder-red and indigo-ble dominate the ground of this lovely tribal rug - made by Qashqa'i nomads around 1900. Particulary attractive too is the clear ivory border depicting a continuous floral vine - symbolically representing the eternal cycle of life.
The central lozenge - peculiar to the Qashqa'i - represents the Qashqa'i scorpion. The rug is in very good overall condition.
Size: 2.00m x 1.60m (6' 7" x 5' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/PS1
