This chic striped Mazandaran kilim is a trend-setting precursor to modern art and a fabulous representation of minimalism created before the dawn of its age.

Antique Persian Mazandaran Kilim, Origin: Persia, Circa: Early 20th Century – An optical delight and tantalizing example of abstraction and minimalism, this definitive Mazandaran kilim embodies the recent concept of less is more. This provincial Persian kilim is a complete embodiment of the minimalist aesthetic, although it was created long before the first definitive modern art movements in the West. Undulating zebra-stripe lines produce a mesmerizing op-art effect that’s enhanced by the abrupt transition to the stormy black and blue center panel, which provides an extraordinarily powerful visual effect through color, contrast and line-based forms. Chromatic and achromatic features are juxtaposed expertly with the touch of a modern master. Together, the simplistic stripes, understated composition and sparing color palette form a superb minimalist composition deserving a place of honor in any modern interior or contemporary art collection.
