This impressive overall design rug is made of silk and comes from Tabriz. Its remarkable feature is the presence of the boteh pattern which repeats itself in different colour columns that cover the field of the carpet. The Boteh motif is a paisley-shaped design. The motif is often used to symbolize immortality and the season of autumn. The pattern is considered by few to be a flame, other interpretations also exists such as a leaf, a bush or a pine. The motif is an ancient symbol that appears to have its origins in ancient Persia. There is nothing common about this carpet. The design is so clever that the overall impression this carpet gives is one of harmony and balance. Yet, it must be kept in mind that a large part of the composition is in gold and yellows in various shades, and when seen in that context its beauty is jaw dropping. The quality of the design and craftsmanship are exceptional.
