About

Rare room size pictorial Tabriz rug priced at a great value compared to others of the same kind.

Pictorial rugs are some of the most over-the-top examples of the artistry, talent and determination needed to design and construct a Fine, everlasting carpet. From antique tapestries to lavish hunting rugs, these pictorial rugs pay homage to history, people and important events. Pictorial Persian carpets have been traditionally produced in Kashan, Isfahan, Tabriz and cities where the great master weavers worked. Indian and Persian hunting rugs are excellent examples of pictorial rugs and scenic carpets that depict countless animals, horsemen and animated predators set among a lush, forested background. Portraits of dignitaries, important officials and high-ranking people are also found in antique pictorial rugs. With the same token, weavers also choose to illustrate important scenes from history and literature. Pastoral landscape scenes and geographic illustrations of particular places are also found in some prestigious pictorial rugs. Even tribal weavers depict people and animals, but they do this in a much more simplified and abstract manner.

In many ways, pictorial and scenic carpets feature a more detailed and specific composition that is similar to traditional works of art and breaks away from the ambiguity of all-over patterns filled with lush vinescrolls. Due to their rarity, quality and execution, antique pictorial rugs are coveted representations of the varied art of carpet weaving.
