Qashqai, Southern Iran


4 m by 1 m

Fantastically luxurious, deep pile " Gabbeh" from the Qashqai tribes around the city of Shiraz, in Southern Iran.

Gabbeh were originally for sleeping on and typically were more abstract and wild than traditional Persian weaving.

This piece has flowing abrash, in a mid blue,possibly designed to evoke a river, and is scattered with tribal figures and amulets.
