LAVER KIRMAN, Southeast Persian
4' 2" x 5' 8"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) This superb antique Laver Kirman is a quite finely crafted Persian city rug that is imbued with an intensity more often associated with tribal rug artistry. Its ever-changing waves of color animate an allover array of carefully rendered boteh ("Seed of Life" motifs), where each element is drawn with complete originality--no two are precisely alike. Flowing botanical borders share this rhythmic, spontaneous character, demonstrating a profound originality that we recognize as art-level. Learn About This Rug Type
