Large Tribal and Geometric Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – Showcasing a striking amount of detail in a relatively limited color palette, this beautiful antique Persian Serapi rug is a study in beauty and elegance. It features a rich, dark border that provides viewers with ample points of interest. The interior showcases a winding series of curling vines and stems, standing out in their presentation because of the angular forms the movements take. The darker border leads the viewer’s eyes to the core of the antique Persian rug, where viewers have the opportunity to observe the angular floral motifs within. These shapes are artfully arranged in a series of symmetrical configurations, which results in a much more versatile application of the antique rug in just about any traditional or minimalist environment. At the very core of the Serapi Heriz rug is an octagonal black mandala that grounds the surrounding elements and defines the arboreal presence throughout.
