Beautiful Small Artistic Pictorial Hunting Scene Design Luxurious Vintage Persian Silk Qum Rug, country of origin: Persian Rugs, Circa date: Vintage – Qum hunting rugs are favorites among collectors and this one is a beautiful example in light and airy colors. Hunting rugs show a high level of skills and require exceptionally fine weaving. Qum is known for its silk production, which can be spun into fine threads and allows highly detailed pictorial designs, like this vintage piece.

Qum only began producing rugs in the 1930s and created unique pieces by drawing inspiration from weaving traditions around the world. The borders and overall design of the piece are Persian, but the theme of the rug draws inspiration from the hunting tapestries from the time of King Henry VI. These tapestries graced the walls of castles and buildings of the state with scenes that portrayed the monarchy and rules engaged in a successful hunt.

The Qum weavers took this theme and transformed the characters into famous Persian rulers throughout the ages. They are full of symbolism in the animals and plants that are portrayed. The deer are a symbol of love and beauty. Horses represent a long life. The gazelle represents the ability to rise above life’s difficult circumstances. Many of these animals appear throughout ancient and modern Persian poetry as representations of these ideals.

This is a beautifully artistic piece with graceful lines and curves. The colors are neutral with accents of beautiful reds, blues, and pinks. The figures are realistic and created with a high level of artistic skill. This is a smaller piece that would be perfect as an accent rug or in a smaller room of your home. This rug could also be hung as a piece of fascinating artwork on the wall. The overall tone of the rug is earthy, and you will enjoy its classic elegance in your home or business.
