In the realm of carpets, Kerman rugs are often categorized as quintessential “traditional” Persian rugs. The nomenclature “Kerman” pays homage to the province and city of Kerman situated in the southern central expanse of Iran. However, this is no mere replication of the conventional antique Persian Kerman design rug. Remarkably, it boasts an iconic hunting scene rug design, a testament to the unparalleled craftsmanship of Persian master rug weavers. Every facet, every nuance, meticulously woven, from the intricate faces and goat heads adorning the small guard borders to the imposing elephant at the focal point, is a product of thoughtful consideration. This bespoke rug is a manifestation of genuine passion and dedication.
Originating from rugs woven a century ago during the Persian rug renaissance in the mid to late 19th century, this custom rug is a contemporary interpretation of the Safavid period hunting scene design. It provides a captivating window into the life and artistry of this iconic dynasty. The hunting scene design portrays a plethora of meticulously rendered animals and hunters, encapsulating the bravery of the hunters themselves.
Drawing parallels to the renowned 16th-century Ghyath ud-Din Jami Milan hunting carpet, this modern rendition stands as a magnificent fusion of quality and design. The play of lighter taupe hues against the darker backdrop imparts a dynamic quality to the carpet’s design. The meticulous attention to detail in both design and coloration of the depicted animals adds depth to every facet of the composition. Despite showcasing a hunting scene, this contemporary custom design rug not only captures the thrill of the chase but also underscores the inherent beauty of nature. It seamlessly blends action with tranquility, symbolizing the dual nature of human existence.
Much like an enduring gift, those who choose to grace their floors with this magnificent rug will undoubtedly uncover new and exquisite design elements for years to come. This modern iteration of the original Kerman rug, with its Persian Hunting Scene, seamlessly marries strength with serenity. It is a hunting scene that emanates both calmness and excitement, undeniably standing as a phenomenal work of art.
