Mashed Belouch, N.E.Iran

Belouch, Torbat I Haidari , wool on wool


1.3 m by 2.2 m

Unusual Iranian Belouch with dragon and serpent motifs drawn in the field. With a tree of life dividing them. Also scattered in the design are amulets and good luck charms.

The wool is long and velvety, with a heavy, but flexible handle. An example of fine village weaving still being made in Iran today.
