Persian Carpet (People of the Islamic Republic of Iran)

9 ft. x 12 ft.Hand woven of New Zealand wool pile on a cotton foundation; Persian knot, extremely high thread count.This Persian carpet was designed and constructed by master carpet weavers from the Islamic Republic of Iran. Persian culture is world renowned for its carpet and textile designs. There lies a peaceful, poetic elegance to this piece. The softly ivory colored foreground is fraught with the 'tree-of-life' illustration; rich ornamentation, with flower stems and foliage, wrought with geometrical symmetry. This piece may also be interpreted as a “pictorial carpet” or “rug tableau.” That is, it is designed to be hung on the wall (or laid on the floor). The process of stylizing and preserving the form of such textiles requires a deep knowledge of craft as transmitted via oral tradition through centuries in Persian culture.
