This is an antique Qashqai rug woven in Southwest Persia circa 1910 – 20s. The design of this rug incorporates a center medallion surrounded by a more loosely drawn variant of the famous herati pattern. The center medallion is repeated in each of the corners of the field, and this type of hooked medallion is indicative of the Qashqai tribe and can be seen in many of their different types of textile productions. The large scale of these medallions against the smaller more densely packed motifs within the field create a visual contrast and draws the viewers’ attention towards the medallions and away from the densely packed field. The main border breaks up the geometric pattern within the field and incorporates an ascending tree design with blossoming flowers. The border design creates a type of movement within the rug and causes the eye to ascend with the flowers and move towards the top of the rug. This type of visual effect shows the talent and skill of the weaver.
This rug is finely handknotted on a wool foundation with 100 % wool pile and is available in:
- 244 x 162 cm
