Antique Kirman Camel and Pastel Blue Rug BB6407 12'8" × 18'0" $90,000
Kerman carpets and rugs can successfully be called the Rolls-Royces of the weaving world. Their impeccable execution of the Carmania wool, a wide range of designs, a broad palette, use of natural dyes and fibers, great tensile strength and abrasion resistance, as well as expert color combinations put them on the pedestal of Persian craftsmanship.
This magnificent antique rug absolutely lives up to the severe Kerman standards. Its soft and luminous pile reveals that the imposing textile was thoroughly hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with centuries-old weaving techniques by a skilled artisan who applied extremely high knot density in order to reflect the profoundly artistic and incredibly detailed design. The main field, divided into four quadrants by a graceful medallion-suffused lace, carries even polygons filled with meticulously-crafted, diverse traditional Persian motifs.
The prevailing theme is the Tree of Life – a powerful symbol expressing the human longing for existence after death – in some cases accompanied by cypresses and vases. This thriving abundance is enclosed within the series of equally compelling borders with further tree motifs and plethora of millefleur. Sublime forms and slender lines make the design look ultimately sophisticated. The color palette of sapphire, ivory and caramel is the final touch to this palatial composition. This antique Persian rug will undoubtedly be the gem of any interior, bringing in the splendor, timelessness and invaluable historical heritage of the Oriental artistry.
