The main theme of this rug’s design is immortality. The main fields is occupied by two trees with meandering branches – the Tree of Life is a traditional oriental motif expressing hope for life after death. The main field is embraced by a series of borders adorned with palmettes and flowering climbers. The color palette emphasizes the message – the color blue symbolizes afterlife and is often paired with motifs like the Tree of Life or cypresses. Shades of gold and beige, on the other hand, stand for purity, but they may also symbolize power and wealth.

Under the condition of proper maintenance, the rug will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
