The artistic tiger design area rugs are a traditional Indian rug type. You can find tiger rugs ranging from vintage to modern in styles from realistic to abstract, such as this one. Sometimes, tiger rugs are created in the shape of the tiger and mimic a tanned tiger hide. Other times, they are incorporated into other rugs and appear as if a tiger animal pelt design has been laid on top of the design.
Tigers occupy a unique space in Indian culture. For many centuries, they have stood as a symbol of power, beauty, and fierceness. They are also associated with valor and bravery. The tiger also holds a space in the mythology of India as the vehicle of the Goddess Durga.
Hunting tigers used to be considered one of the highest acts of bravery. It was a favorite sport of kings and noblemen. The tiger is a top predator in the ecosystem and at the apex of the food chain. To display a tiger pelt that you have hunted yourself is a sign of status in Indian culture and was reserved for only those of the highest rank.
The practice of hunting tigers has long since disappeared, and now tigers are protected. You will seldom find real tiger pelts on the floors of Indian homes and palaces, which is how the tradition of the tiger rug developed. The tradition of the tiger rug continues to represent the idea of strength, valor, and all of the characteristics embodied by the original tiger animal pelt rugs.
Now, you can find many tiger rugs in abstract designs and modern color schemes. They reflect the traditional meanings and significance, only they take on a more whimsical character, as in this rug from our modern artistic area rugs. Highly sophisticated modern rugs such as this one would make a beautiful piece to display in front of a sofa, in your bedroom, or entranceway. It is a fun way to add a touch of Indian cultural tradition to your space.
