A beautiful Persian hand knotted carpet/rug which shows the technical brilliance of the craftsmen. Originally the Persian rugs/carpets were made in the 16th century in Isfahan. Kashan is traditionally a place where many royal workshops existed, from where some of the best woollen rugs/carpets come from even today. The field of the carpet/rug is a hunting scene which depicts hunters attacking prey such as lions. The contrasting teal background makes the figures stand out. It is a Persian rug/carpet made of fine quality wool on a cotton foundation.
