About the piece

This is most probably a symbolic prayer rug in the sense that it depicts most of the religion practiced in ancient and present Persia( Iran). one could see Zoroastrian signs of Ahuramazda and the sun, in another corner, the Kufic Islamic writings and at the same time the Jewish inscription in Hebrew . This is truly an unusual and amazing rug in very good condition with original kilim ends. Tabriz is situated in the northwest of Iran close to the Azerbaijan and the Turkish border. Tabriz carpets come almost exclusively woven on vertical looms from the city and their surroundings and woven by experienced weavers in private houses where often the proud weaver and designer weave his or her name on the carpet. The Turkish knot is almost always used (the population of Tabriz is Turkish by race and language). Tabriz carpets play a very important role in Persian carpet production. Tabriz rugs are amongst the most sought after rugs by Persians for their houses and interiors. Some of the most common designs are Mahi (Fish) taken from the Persian gardens. Other designs are floral, often with a central medallion. the recent pieces have more silk than others and the finest are woven onto silk foundations (silk fringes).
