Many of the late 19th century rugs created around the weaving centers of Tabriz have a more formal feel. These antique Persian rugs use many of the same motifs, only they tend to have a more hand-drawn, primitive feel. This rug uses the paisley boteh motif in the corners of the field. This is an ancient symbol that stands for the eternal flame that was kept burning in Zoroastrian temples. In some areas, it is also known as the seed of life.
The symbol typically appears in a more rounded form that closely resembles the modern paisley pattern. This unusual rectangular rendition gives the tribal rug a unique feel. Another addition that you do not typically see is the representation at the bottom of the symbol that looks like the roots of a seedling beginning to emerge. This might be to suggest the concept of new beginnings or growth in abundance.
The antique Persian Heriz, Serapi and Bakshaish rugs have added their charm to spaces for many years, and this one will transform any room into one that is warm and cozy. Antique rugs like this would make a perfect combination with a red velvet sofa with a curved back or in a space that layers on the texture.
