Kashan Antique Pictorial
Stock No. SY-500-000036
This most beautiful picture rug is a Kashan and it depicts a beautiful and restful scene that shows an abundance of motifs with animals in the foreground, moving on then through a village scene with streams, bridges and other buildings and in the background appear to be snow covered mountains. Symbolism is often important in Persian rugs, and in this case one can’t help but notice the presence of trees, not only in the field but also contained in the main border. Stylisation of various plants, such as cypress, date, palm fig and olive, are used to symbolise the tree of life. This rug would look splendid hanging on a wall.
