About

This Persian Zabol carpet circa 1940 in handspun wool and vegetable dyes features a geometric display of leaping horses amid an intricately decorated field. Prevalent throughout the design are various symbolic motifs such as Ahura Mazda, well known from the ancient ruins of Persepolis, and four-part figures in the Zoroastrian tradition, representing the four natural elements of earth, wind, water and fire. The border is equally intricate with its multiple bands and alternating geometric patterns. Throughout the field and border there is a unique combination of colors including cream, gold, deep blues and reds, and bright pinks and greens. The design and color palette are beautifully proportioned and balanced throughout the piece. This carpet measures 3'9" x 6'4" and is in excellent vintage condition.
