Magnificently Artistic Antique Small Scatter Size Persian Pictorial Kerman Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1900 – This antique Persian Kerman rug features a pictorial rug design that focuses highly on figurative illustrations.
The design itself helps to showcase the historic nature of this small scatter size rug. The figurative and pictorial nature of the design highlights the complexity and skill required to weave intricate designs like these into an Oriental rug.
As is the case with “regular” art and paintings, rug designs give a lot of insight into the history of the culture that created them. The groups of human figures in the field create an element of framing around the central figure. This royal king figure really draws the eye toward the center of the design of this artistic pictorial Kerman pug and creates a natural central focal point.
Another beautiful aspect of this antique Persian rug is that the colors work together and off of each other extremely well. This demonstrates that this is more than simply a design on a rug. It is actually a breathtaking pictorial Kerman rug and a work of historical art in and of itself.
The large pictorial design occupies the entirety of the central field, and the design is bordered by multiple interesting borders to create the appearance of frame. The smaller darker tone of the inner border adds an interesting element of contrast to the design. This is mostly due to the fact that it contrasts with both the central filed as well as the outer border.
The combination of the outer frame designs and pictorial central field design give this beautiful rug the appearance of a historical painting in a frame. While some may use this as a table cover for one’s desk, others may chose to display it as a wall hanging tapestry.
Regardless of how you use it, this pictorial Kerman rug is a beautiful work of art that is sure to garner much love appreciation from whoever happened to see it.
