QASHQAI KASHKULI, Southwest Persian
3' 7" x 7' 8"
Late 19th Century
(Connoisseur-Caliber) Exquisitely detailed, this singular Qashqai Kashkuli offers an immense feast for the eyes, not only in its volume of detail, but in its frequency as well. The field of this Qashqai is almost bifurcated lengthwise by color, with almost every design in the field having its own mirrored image on the other side in alternate colors. Qashqai weavers tended to readapt the traditional pattern language that was handed down through the generations, which makes the uniqueness, creativity and daring use of asymmetry seen here even more remarkable. Its atypical, elongated shape make it ideal for display either in a passageway, behind a sofa or as wall art. Learn About This Rug Type
