About

This Persian Zabol carpet circa 1940 in handspun wool and vegetal dyes was created in Zabol in the province of Sistan. This carpet features an overall garden design, with three sets of four intersecting lines dividing the main field. Following influences of the Zoroastrian period, the four lines represent the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water. The number three is also significant in that it represents the three tenants of Zoroastrianism, that is to think out of goodness, to speak out of goodness and to act out of goodness. The carpet's three central octagons represent the traditional "hose," or outdoor garden and pool that were historically the focal point of Persian homes. Prevalent throughout the field are stylized phoenixes in varying colors of royal blue, natural green, deep orange and neutral cream tones, adorned by surrounding flowers in shades of light purple, red and gold among other colors. This carpet is in excellent vintage condition and measures 4' x 6'6".
