  • Condition: Excellent
  • Notes: Of all the motifs used over the centuries in Oriental rugs, one design stands out among the others, not only for its impactful theme, but also due to a long history that spans numerous cultures and geographical areas. Known today as the Tree of Life, the design has played a central role in the arts for millennia, showing up in everything from pottery and mosaics to paintings and other handcrafted items. And while its exact origins are unclear, with some researchers saying it dates as far back as the Mesopotamian era, the design can be found threaded through the religious and secular histories of ancient peoples the world over. In the realm of rugs, it has been depicted and celebrated, especially through Antique Persian rugs. Within this category, this iconic and beautiful depiction has been achieved in various styles, such as Khorassan, Kerman, and Kashan carpets. This is due to Ancient Iranian culture’s Sacred World Tree which bears all seeds, also known as The Tree of Life! The “Tree of Life” rug design is a popular motif in oriental carpets, pottery and other decorative items. Since the symbol is found in many different cultures around the world, its exact origin is obscure. However, scholars believe it originated in ancient Mesopotamia, although the tree’s features have transformed over the centuries.
