|Tree of Life with Peacocks War Rug |
Perfect. Excellent quality. The colors in this rug are vibrant and rich. A strong lime green line runs down the center of the rug, the 'trunk' of the Tree of Life.
Rows of helicopters, peacocks, and grenades, and short rifles line either side of the trunk. Just inside the border are lines of what look to be leaves in multiple colors. Several different medallions create the main border.
|Large Tree of Life Rug |
Abstracted motif of an eagle carrying prey. Motif of deer is so abstracted that it's hard to tell what it is.
|Hunting Rug with Cars|
The condition of this rug is excellent. It is the best quality of rugs from Herat. On a scale of one to 10 it is a 9.5. Rug is soft and supple with a felt like feel. The felt like feel is what we consider the best. Rug shows many colors throughout a broad range. There is some expected tip fading in the lightest of the four blue colors. This is typical for this color in these rugs. It has a nice oxidation shown in color and sheen. Thin border is common in hunting rugs, and the bands of pattern on top and bottom are very nice. There are tree of life motifs in corners of field. Imagery includes the eagle attacking a lamb motif.
