Antique Tribal Prayer Persian Gabbeh Rug 49102
Beautiful Prayer Design Antique Tribal Persian Gabbeh Rug 49102, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1936 – Like many beautiful Gabbeh rugs, this Persian rug masterpiece, which features a prayer rug design, uses a relatively simple arrangement of shapes and colors to convey a soothing sense of tranquility. Lighter beige tones stand out against darker earthy ones to create a natural display of color. With only a few colors prominently defined, the viewer does not need to divide their attention too frequently, and the strong use of land-marking around the borders and top of the antique rug results in an even more pronounced display of wonder. Several straight lines and rigid motions define the foreground of the piece, culminating in the mountain-like representation along the upper half of the Oriental rug that seems almost to work with the surrounding border in defining the foreground space.
