Intricate Antique Pictorial Kerman Persian Rug 51099, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1880 – Unlike many exquisite classic traditional rugs from Persia, this breathtaking antique Persian Kerman rug establishes a concrete picture through the use of fine weaving. This impressive antique Persian Pictorial Mashahir rug does not rely so heavily on patterning and floral motifs as much as it does discernible outlining and contrasting in order to draw the viewer’s attention to the details located at the very heart of the Pictorial rug. Several philosophers and scholars stand before a prestigious building, the throng of people engaging each other in conversation. Some hold scrolls, some hold swords, but all are represented by their dignified dress, and each scholar is unique in presentation through the artist’s skillful use of gentle outlining and elegant coloring.
