NAME: Vintage Turkmen
Pictorial design vintage rug depicting the famous Persian Omar Khayyam - poet, philosopher, mathematician etc. The picture on this rug shows the poet sitting in the corner on top of a rug with dancing girls in the background. Large birds & other animals are placed on each side of the central stylized tree of life with blooming flowers at the base. Aged rich charcoal colour is used as a background for this scene. Spectacular exceptionally wide Turkoman design border & guards reminiscent of mosaic tiles & fine tapestry frame the central scene. Finely hand-knotted in sheep's wool this pictorial rug has been created by artisans with skills that have been handed down through generations. Pictorial rugs are the hardest to design & to work out the scale of the figures etc. The Turkoman tribe is known as the finest of all tribal weavers & this magnificent rug is no exception.
