Stock No. ME-100-000822
The rugs from Qum ‘walk on the shoulders of giants’. Because they are relatively new arrivals to the art of carpet design and weaving, they have drawn inspiration from the best carpet weavers, and often have produced rugs superior to those from which they have drawn inspiration.
These carpets are regarded as being among the most beautiful and the most exclusive Persian carpets available. They are often knotted entirely in silk, resulting in a carpet with great lustre. The fine silk thread used makes it possible to produce incredibly detailed patterns.
This is a central medallion carpet, and it is a masterpiece is a symphony of breathtaking colors seamlessly woven into harmonious beauty. At its heart, a central medallion forms a captivating shape, gracefully expanding to a well-positioned center that beckons your eye to explore its mesmerizing contents – a rich tapestry of colors and motifs.
At the center of this particular carpet is an arabesque pattern, that also appears elsewhere. There is symmetry in relation to it, but it is like a lattice that's gone completely crazy, like the roots of a plant moving in all sorts of direction, and yet there's harmony, balance, and symmetry.
The arabesque pattern in Persian carpets often symbolizes the interconnectedness of life, resembling the organic and intricate growth of plants. The chaotic yet harmonious design reflects the complexity and diversity of existence. This symbolism signifies the balance between order and randomness, fostering a sense of unity within diversity—a key theme in Persian art and philosophy. The deliberate asymmetry conveys the idea that beauty can emerge from unpredictability, mirroring the unpredictability of life itself.
In Persian culture, the garden is synonymous with paradise, and this carpet beautifully captures the essence of divine beauty. The profusion of flowers goes beyond the imagery of spring; it ventures into a realm where abundance becomes heavenly, a testament to the genius of the designer.
The repetition of floral patterns in the guard border enhances the overall continuity and sophistication of this extraordinary carpet, making it a spectacular addition to any setting.
