Mythology & The Tree of Life Introducing one of our Gallery collection highlights: a stunning all silk Mohtasham Kashan rug in mint condition. So excellently done and with such luxurious materials that it almost certainly was a special commission.
The magic tree with special powers is a forceful concept shared across many belief systems. The biblical Tree of Life & Tree of Knowledge. The ancient Persian Vaq Vaq Tree with its infinite animal head branches revealing wisdom. Or the ancient Jedi Force Tree we see in the newest Star Wars movie.
Behold the colours! The perfect sky blue with that awesome golden saffron. The complexity and sheer variety of fantastic beasts (and their coloration) are over the top. I particularly love the Phoenix at the top with its speckled wings. The archaic border denotes a very early age, circa 1850-1870.
