Distinguished by unusually large dimensions for a tribal carpet, this singular antique Oriental room-size carpet achieves a level of mesmerizing detail work that is synonymous with the best southern Persian weaving. The age-old boteh ("Seed of Life") design which encases a full flower that is employed as the field pattern is typically seen exclusively in smaller-sized Afshars. Here the allover design begets a lively rhythmic ambiance. This entrancing repetition is contrasted by the personalized calligraphy that appears in the upper right corner, demonstrating the special pride of craftsmanship held by the weavers of this unique piece. Its extremely good condition further distinguishes this singular carpet.
