Here is an old and moody antique Persian Afshar, woven in the 1920s by nomads and these rugs are typically from small looms.
This tribal rug features many symbolic elements that the weavers left us including the 8 pointed star (2 in the center and one on each corner of the field) representing the ability of human beings, to attain a higher level of understanding and wisdom. It also has peacocks all over, symbolic for happiness, love and nobility. It is a treat to know the history and spirit that comes with each woven old rug.
This antique Persian is low pile.
