Semi-antique large, hand-woven Persian Shirvan kilim in a vibrant color palette with geometric motifs throughout and enhanced by a scattering of charming animal motifs. This piece is very finely woven. Condition is very good.
Note: From the earliest times, people have believed that by imitating, or weaving, part of a dangerous animal, they will have power over it. That's why animal motifs are so common in iilim rugs. Also, because nomadic people lived on cattle breeding and the primary threat is the attack of wolves.
