Quite The Fine Weave Hunting Design Vintage Persian Tabriz Area Rug 51026, Knots Per Square Inch: 500, Rug Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Weaving Date: Late 20th Century – This glorious vintage Persian Tabriz rug features a magnificent hunting scene that is reminiscent of the iconic Safavid period rugs. Detailed depictions of hunters and archers on horseback encircle an entrapment of deer, which forms the nucleus of the vintage Persian carpet’s design, and delicate strands with floral imagery frame the wild conglomeration of hunters and animals.
The hunting scene design is set against navy blue color. This provides a fantastic backdrop on which the figures of horses, deer, birds and humans are so majestically juxtaposed and illuminated with striking clarity.
In the main inner field of this vintage Persian silk rug, is where the hunting action takes place. The tension between the hunters and the their pray is powerfully expressed. Here, the playful prancing deer in the border are replaced by a more frantic depiction of the same. Here we see the animals with limbs spread out, hiding behind flowers, heads tilted to the sky and mouths are opened as if to allow a billowing cry in a last ditch effort to escape the hunters inevitable clutches.
The strong, majestic hunting horses in this breathtaking silk rug appear to be furiously dashing about. These beautifully drawn out horses match the ferocity of the hunters on their backs, who draw back their arrows and swords with widely sweeping gestures.
This brilliant tension between peace and war, fight and flight, flora and fauna and serenity and danger culminates in the complex formation in the very center of the vintage rug. In this mesmerizing array, the bodies of several deer appear to be heaped on top of one another. The powerful ferocity of the entire illustration within this vintage Persian Tabriz rug, is completed with this subtle depiction of their impending demise.
This breathtaking vintage Persian Tabriz rug is an excitingly artistic example of tribal and somewhat savage beauty. It is the type of Oriental rug that will add a powerful and mysterious mood to any interior design setting.
Extravagant in its presentation, this wonderful vintage Persian Tabriz rug conveys a definitive sense of grace and majesty, especially when the viewer takes a closer look at the details within. The color palette of this beautiful vintage rug is a combination of the volcanic and earthy, with beautiful olive tones standing out against vibrant gold and navy blue. Floral design elements and leaves dance around the edges of the fine vintage Persian rug, where the borders meet with the darkness at the foreground. Here, the work is especially unique for the way the artist includes animals and humans. Hunters riding majestic horses chase after their prey with bows and arrows in a symmetrical flurry of motion.
