Antique Kerman Tree Of Life Design Persian Rug 41805
Antique Persian Kerman Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This exquisite antique Kerman is inspired by the fabric and wallpapers designed by William Morris. It depicts an Oriental garden or paradise theme with the tree of life, but in place of the symmetrical presentation and animal or human inhabitants customary in Persian designs of this type, this one is asymmetrical and almost entirely floral, which, like much of its detail, recalls Neo-medieval design and gold-on-black coloration of Morris’s work. Rendered with impeccable skill and decorative sensibility, this carpet is truly one of a kind.
The tree of life design is a universal symbol that is found in almost every culture of the world. This ancient design motif is beautifully recreated in this exquisite antique Persian Kerman carpet from the late 19th century. The natural shades of brown work together to create an earthy, natural feel in this beautiful garden paradise. Occasional crimson and cranberry reds and light blues create interest throughout the design.
Many different types of flowers intertwine and weave their way from the earth to the heavens. A single, gentle bird sits beneath the shade of the tree and all of its abundance. Multiple formal borders create a frame for the central field design of this breathtaking antique Kerman tree of life design Persian rug, and carry the colors and motifs throughout the entirety of the design. The flowers and plants represented have special meaning that represent certain ideals and characteristics for those who know how to interpret them.
In this extremely fine antique rug, the sky is filled with heavenly flowers, while the bottom portion of the Persian Kerman rug is dominated by leaves and stems. This embodies the idea of the growth of the person and the journey through life to reach the sweet, heavenly perfumes of the higher realms. The designer of this magnificent room size carpet included many subtle cues to the real meaning represented in the abundant garden.
This exquisite design is spectacular in its use of color and design to represent heavenly concepts and ideals that bind many peoples of the earth together. The beauty of this Persian antique Kerman tree of life design rug transcends the earthly realms and brings a sublime beauty to the room. It will be a treasured addition to any space for one who has an appreciation for the time-honored story that it has to tell.
