Stunning tribal rug from the Zagros Mountains of southwest Iran. Fantastic geometric design with many intricate details. Traditional Qashqai medallions with tree of life motifs and multiple icons. Ivory, crimson, green, and black are the primary colors.
Four corner medallions surrounding a central ivory medallion on a crimson field. 100% natural wool. 1950s. Out of my personal collection.
Very good condition with only minimal signs of wear. A vibrant and powerful piece of tribal art work! Reasonably heavy and solid for its size so it can handle high foot traffic. Fantastic statement piece– dynamic art for your floor!
The Qashqai are a confederation of 5 distinct tribal groups who banded together in a political alliance in the 19th century. Another confederation — the Khamseh (which means 5 in Arabic) — formed in the 19th century as a counterbalance to the Qashqai. The rugs of these tribes are quite similar in many respects.
The size is 9 ft. by 5 ft. 5 in.
