(“SPRING 2018 PRINT CATALOG", inside back cover)
This connoisseur caliber, antique Persian Isfahan area rug features a particularly life-like depiction of the renowned Tree of Life motif. Area rugs are always the creation of a single weaver and are often more expressive than larger carpets. Here, the single tree’s branches flare in natural asymmetry across the field. Its creator achieved the unusual challenge of bedecking bird and flower forms with striping that completely individualizes this art rug as it evokes a very light-hearted ambiance, highly uncharacteristic of Isfahan weaving. The bird in the upper right corner with the curiously craned neck adds a further playful element. Learn About This Rug Type
