Significant on many levels, animals not only provide sustenance and labor, but also the raw materials for the rug weaving. Birds and animals also have a profound spiritual and cultural meaning. They are, as with all the symbols in Persian rugs integral to the art and purpose of the piece. These elements in rug designs have a purpose that is both artistic and spiritual in nature.
The beauty and the value of vintage or antique rugs are hidden in the uniqueness by the personal touch of the master weaver from the tools that they have or had available to them. Due to these old processes, the rugs may not have straight lines or square corners. Moreover, even with our best intention to inspect these rugs, they may have some old repair, or some spot that may not be easy to see. Please bid accordingly.
