Qum rugs are among the finest in the world and this example is no exception. The quality of this Qum silk rug is particularly high. It is a very finely knotted rug with a central medallion design that contains in that design colours that repeat themselves in the main border. The patterns are highly curvilinear. There is a clever use of colours with various shades of grey and green combining very well together. The colour green when used more liberally in Persian carpets represents hope. According to the Koran, Mohammed’s favourite colour was green. Partially because of this, Persian rugs that feature this colour can be regarded as particularly important and prestigious. The floral motifs appearing in this carpet speak of abundance, spring and renewal of life. This carpet would look very impressive in any setting.
