Reverence for the boteh or "Seed of Life" pattern is apparent in the dynamic use of this motif throughout this rug's rich brick red field and its deep blue reserve. Careful examination reveals the umpteen nuances of pattern, color and scale this beloved, age-old motif is rendered. The twin prominent ivory stepped diamond-shaped medallions provide an exciting contrast while continual asymmetries and whimsically irregular drawing infuse tremendous charm and joie de vivre into this wonderfully preserved rare Afshar tribal rug.
