A Persian Tabriz rug, No-166238 (282x198cm)

The rich Persian literature and poetry, like the following verses from Khayyam, the second of which is woven in this superb Tabriz carpet around the first half of the 20th century, represent a culture that has resisted countless catastrophic invasions, wars, and turbulences in its more than three thousand years of history and continues to live a vibrant life. The designs of many Persian carpets represent that astonishing culture through colourful patterns and symbols or, in this case, the literal inscriptions of poems.

"A book of verses underneath the Bough, A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread and ThouBeside me, singing in the WildernessOh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!"

"Loh, my friend, join me, no worries of tomorrow; let's cherish each breath, every moment today. When we leave this old world with dismay, With seven thousand-year-olds in slumber, we'll lay.

This carpet is genuinely remarkable and rich in meaning and cultural significance. It can adorn your home, elevating its aesthetics and imbuing it with spiritual tranquillity that eases the weariness of a long day's work, transforming it into the most serene and profound place on earth.
