Persian Tabriz Superfine
Stock No. SY-142-001302
This is one of the most beautiful pictorial carpets one could hope to find. It is a Tabriz superfine wool carpet that depicts an important event in the life of Yusuf. The scene is where Zuleikha's circle of friends having mocked her for being in love with a slave, are invited to her home. She gives them all apples, and knives to peel them with. She then had Yusuf walk through. His appearance was such that it distracted the women who cut themselves with the knives. Zuleikha then pointed out that she had to see Yusuf every day. The central figure here is Yusuf and the picture tells the story as effectively as a thousand words. The craftsmanship and beautify of this carpet are self-evident. It is a prize to behold bringing to mind such an important religious figure, who in fact guided by the Almighty. was above giving in to the temptations of Zuleikha.
