LAVER KIRMAN "TREE OF LIFE", Southeast Persian
5' 6" x 8' 0"
(“Fall/Winter New Arrivals Event“)This 170-year-old Laver Kirman offers rare artistry in the very seldom found, large area size dimensions of 5-1/2 x 8. Woven in the middle of the 19th century, it presents a one-of-a-kind depiction of the Garden of Paradise design, featuring a "forest" of cypress trees. The artistic color striation and individual contours of the tree motifs support a subtle, and expertly imbued, aliveness in this seemingly repeated pattern, an ability that is greatly valued by connoisseurs of early Persian carpets. Because of its rare 5-1/2 x 8 size and breathtaking artistry, this piece can certainly elevate a small seating area or a vestibule with its understated beauty.
