BIJAR CAMELHAIR TREE OF LIFE, Northwest Persian
4' 11" x 6' 8"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“NEW ARRIVAL") Rhythmic, generous spacing of arboreal motifs, a well-balanced, color palette, and a ground of the finest undyed camel hair are extremely rare elements that have been brilliantly combined in this positively alluring area-size Bijar rug. The weeping willow motifs of the traditional Tree of Life design are each drawn with great spontaneity and variation, with meandering lines that clearly reveal the hand of joyful folk art weavers. Flamelike cypresses showcase delightful rare tones of saffron, jade green and blood orange, yet are only a starting point for the comprehensive and incredibly wide ranging panoply of natural tones seen in the borders and elsewhere. The natural luminosity of pure camelhair visually and emotionally grounds these exuberant artistic choices, adding to this rug's inimitable presence. Learn About This Rug Type
