Zentner Collection: Antique Japanese Tansu, Asian Works of Art
Antique Kurdish tribal rug, made up of four separately hand knotted panels sewn together, possibly originally meant for use as a utilitarian bedding bag (mafrash), beautiful array of colors, the two central panels are framed in a decorative guard band for protective strength, the interior motif appears closest to a rosette motif although could be stylized version of the wheel of life motif, wonderfully integrated into the main motif field are the random additions of a tiny animal figure and two other tiny figures, early 20th century, Iran.
