A Lori Bakhtiar Gabbeh rug, Circa 1900s. No-162768(208x153cm)

This is a fantastic tribal rug. These rugs are the creation of a fascinating culture with a history that spans over 3,000 years. The minimalistic patterns and optimal colour combination make them comparable to the modern art of the early 20th-century European artists, such as Piet Mondrian.

However, what makes such pieces interesting is the total isolation of the Lori tribes at the time. The work offered here is pure, original, and an honest creation of an aesthetic tribal girl who knew nothing of modern art.
