This magnificent piece in our shop is part of our Legacy Rugs, passed down from family and one that is extraordinary in the shop. As you can see, this Persian is filled with animals on the hunt and the weavers portrayed this history from stories that have been verbally passed down from over 1,000 years ago. More than likely, this piece from circa 1880 was originally woven for royalty in Persia like those of the Shah and other nobles. The pictorial rug is with great realism, and displays a great glimpse of nature with meticulously drawn out animals including lions hunting deer and birds in flow, spanning the entire rug with continuity.
It's very detailed and of sheer life and nature, woven with the finest wool in the region of Kashan, noted for the most skillful artisans and masters of craft. It is an extremely tightly woven rug, please notice the knots per inch on this beauty.
Pics taken indoor and outdoor for you to see that natural dye variance in different settings.
