The designs of this lyrical antique Persian Afshar rug are tremendously evocative and one-of-a-kind, blending both floral and deconstructed animal elements. The delicate chain of boteh ("Seed of Life") motifs around the reserve are a very unusual and elegant feature that adds pinpoint refinement to this rug's composition. Evidence of refinement continues in the architectural greek key framing of the medallion - a tremendously difficult effect Afshar rug weavers achieved freehand, without using a cartoon. Rather than the limited colors typically encountered in this style, a myriad of well-chosen and complementary natural hues are thoughtfully integrated throughout the carpet.
