About

Opulence and grace with beguiling ambiance, this antique Persian Mohtashem Kashan large directional prayer rug beautifully displays a scalloped mihrab niche pattern enclosing an ornate vase overflowing with dense florals. On either side of the Persian vase, two tree of life designs sprout into a floral vines filling the center composition with blooming palmettes, star flowers, rosettes, leafy tendrils, blossoms, tulips, lilies, and sickle leaves. The meandering tree branches mingle with a medley of exquisitely composed flowers and leaves creating a majestic cadence throughout this tantalizing composition. The series of borders are equally as compelling, with the masterful color shifts among the complementary tones. With a complementary blue background, the Mihrab spandrels seamlessly meld into the overall idyllic design scheme, allowing each stately floral, leaf and branch to be expressed with elegance.
