TEHRAN VASE RUG, North Central Persian

(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") The central inspiration traditionally for Persian floral rugs was to create a connection for viewers with the quintessential human experience of awe through fetching colors and heart-warming, breath-takingly detailed images. In this 140 year old piece, the natural world is splendiferously alive. Unusually-pleasant goats, perky rabbits, and onlooking deer appear at the base of the vase. Above this harmonious scene from heavily festooned boughs, many endearing types of birds swoop, listen, rest, and peacefully watch the activity while a pair of life-like aqua parrots balance the entire microcosm at the top of the canopy. Adding profound dimensionality to this wonderland, a masterful striation of azure blues heightens the immersive experience. The inspired, sculpted repeated palmette meandering on the rug’s wide parchment border adds a final tranquil rhythm. Learn About This Rug Type
