I love the beautiful drawing of design on this 19th century rug, possibly made by the Safi Khani taifeh within the Qashqa'i Confederacy. I see the rounded shapes as stylised flowers, opening up to the sun, the most important symbol in tribal life providing life! The madder-red ground is glowing and apart from brown-dye corrosion, the rug is in very good overall condition.
