Intricate Fine Luxurious Tree of Life Pattern Prayer Design Vintage Persian Silk Qum Rug, country of origin: Persian Rugs, Circa date: Vintage – Qum is a city with an ancient connection to Islam. Within its borders are several holy sites, including the tomb of Fatimah. Qum is a city that has over 100 mosques, each of which contributes to the importance of the city as a place of pilgrimage. Prayer is an important part of the Islamic faith, and prayers are to be recited five times a day. This rug is a special design that is used to cover the ground during the recitation of daily prayers.

The design of the rug is a “mihrab,” which means “prayer niche.” It is a symbolic representation of the prayer niche found in a mosque and can be used to represent it if you are not near a mosque. The top of the rug is to be pointed toward Mecca.

The rug also contains symbols to remind the practitioner of certain concepts. This rug has a Tree of Life design that represents abundance and the Garden of Eden. At the top of the prayer niche, the oil lamp is a reminder that God is the light of the world.

The colors of this rug are soft, with browns, rusts, and neutrals for an earthy feel. The design of the rug mimics the architecture in many of the mosques located throughout the city. It is a perfect size for a smaller room of the home, or you could use it as an accent piece.

Rugs from Qum are known for their high level of detail and the crispness of the design. This can only be achieved by using high-quality silk that can be spun into fine threads. Qum is known for its silk production and the beautiful designs of rugs, such as this one. This rug will make a beautiful addition to your home and will add warmth through its colors and beautiful design.
