Kashan Rug, Persia, Date - Representing the best of Kashan and greater Persia, this antique carpet is a veritable masterpiece that highlights the country’s rich artistic traditions and the tremendous skill of the famed master weaver Mohtashem. A towering, impeccably detailed Tree of Life grows upward across the directional field and fills the exquisite ruffled niche. Lush millefleur branches with sensuous curves scroll across the fleecy white ground while providing shelter for the delightful birds that perch on its branches. Savage hunting animals represent another famous design type while the arborescent figure becomes a literal Tree of Life through the birds, animals and vivacious creatures that are placed throughout its dense flower-covered branches. This diverse, detail-rich forest is juxtaposed against hyper-saturated spandrels and lush calyx-filled borders that have an aristocratic Safavid style
