(High-Decorative) Crops, and the seeds that must be sown to create them, were of central importance to the worldview of the Kurdish nomadic tribe. They revered these seeds and often depicted them as the "Seed of Life" or boteh motif, a symbol of the earth's, and man's unending potential for growth. Wonderfully complex in symbolism and artistry, these cherished devices offer much food to the imaginative eye. Here the "Seed of Life" is charmingly inserted into all available spaces in the field, alongside tiny tribal elements symbolizing birds. The brilliant ivory main border creates a wonderful counterpoint. (INQUIRE ABOUT THIS RUG TO CLAREMONT 2, 1-800-883-1815) Learn About This Rug Type
