Antique Palace Size Tabriz Carpet, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa date: 1900 — Flowing petals and ferns create movement throughout this detailed Tabriz Carpet as they lead the viewer’s eye on a seemingly never-ending journey along every twist and turn. The vivacious tangerine background is made all the more vibrant by the grounding presence of silky cream, earthy brown, steel gray in the surrounding borders. Delicate flowers of all shapes, sizes and varieties are present within the framing, with all of the details ultimately leading the eye inward. A complex mandala stands as the centerpiece of the antique carpet, unifying all of the elements in a symmetrical display of flowing lines and stark colors. The constant activity creates multiple foregrounds for the viewer to take in and showcases the masterful craftsmanship that went into the carpet’s creation.
