A Baluch prayer rug, No. 31588 100x150cm

Baluch prayer rugs are fascinating to collectors because of their astonishing geometric design. The tree in the middle represents the "Tuba Tree", which is revered in scripture as a tree that has roots in heaven and shows a direction to where the believers would return. 

The rug here is a fine example that has achieved a beautiful harmony by using limited colours and intricacy that demonstrates the skill of the weaver. 

The design of this rug belongs to a group of rugs preserved by generations of weavers and passed through songs that consist of the instruction to recreate the patterns in the form of lyrics and chants.

100% wool.
