Distinctive Majestic Persian Lion with Sword Rug in Gold, Red, and Blue

$2,665Asking Price

About

Measuring 3’4” x 4’11”, this red, gold, blue, orange, and cream Persian Yalameh carpet is traditionally hand knotted and belongs to Orley Shabahang’s World Market Collection. Crafted in Iran, traditional Persian weaving techniques were utilized to create the pile and foundation. This weave creates a soft pile and durable foundation without toxic adhesives or latex and provides this piece with the strength and durability to possess exceptional functionality. To obtain the rich red, gold, blue, orange, and green tones, the weavers used organic vegetable dyes. These dyes are preferred for carpet weaving today for their bright and fade-resistant hues. The carpet’s neutral cream tone comes from the undyed, natural shades of the Persian fat-tailed sheep’s wool. This carpet features a distinctive lion wielding a sword with the sun peaking over his mane. The motif stretches from end to end and contrasts beautifully with the field’s rich red background. In Iran, the iconic symbol of the lion, sword, and sun represent a spiritual leader and teacher, and their gaze is intended to break down the viewer’s barricades. In turn, this allows the viewer to look outward at the carpet, but inward upon themselves. This carpet is a superb example of traditional Persian lion carpets with the exceptional clarity of its motif. Since this piece measures just under 3’ x 5’, this Persian carpet is ideal for a bedroom, a living room, a den, or even an office space.
