Perhaps the most beloved, and difficult to execute, motifs in Persian carpets is the "Seed of Life" design, known in the west as “paisley.” In the Eastern world, this pattern is called “boteh” and it is often presented holding within it a flower in full bloom, symbolizing its potential to burst forth with life. This stunningly intricate, sophisticated Laver Kerman area rug is a woven ode to this design, remarkably finely knotted with a panoply of graceful pods, brilliantly commingled and filled with expressive greens and vivid rose tones. Acquired from a long-established private collector, at over 150 years old, it comes to us in an astonishing heavier pile condition.
