Superb 19th-century Kashans are seldom found today, and virtually never are they found in the 6 x 8 dimensions. This elegant, vibrantly hued Persian city weaving exudes sophistication and regal vitality, while symbolically presenting that celestial forces are apotropaically at work, ensuring harmony and balance on the earth below. This singular piece boasts an astonishingly complex design, replete with a precisely drawn cosmic menagerie of multifarious birds, foxes, gazelles, crowned lions, phoenixes, and other chimeric creatures. Part of a long courtly tradition, this magnificent rug is graced by an exquisite mastery of tapestry drawing and splendidly luminous rich tones. In the border are additional mythological zoomorphic forms camouflaged among the foliage between large sunburst flowerheads. It comes to us in immaculate condition at 130-years of age.
