17th Century Zanjan Persian Textile 40908
Intricate 17th Century Zanjan Persian Textile 40908, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 17th Century – Breaking away from the traditional patterning of many antique Persian textiles, this beautiful 17th century Zanjan piece uses diagonal movements to create a series of repeating patterns along the heart of the textile. A single horizontal bar stands against the diagonal patterning at the center of the Persian textile, creating a sense of grounding through non-traditional bordering. Autumnal colors are chosen to define the landscape, and beautiful instances of olive, orange and green stand against each other in the form of floral petals, fronds and leaves to divide the space within. Through such elegant arrangement, the textile is able to speak for itself, and the inviting tones that dominate the space can provide the viewer with ergonomic potential.
