Mount Fuji Afghan Rug

Here’s a puzzler:
Mushwani, 5’1″ x 7’5″, dated 1994. No coherant translation of Farsi text, yet. The wool is super fine, very well knotted. The use of different checkerboard techniques is noteworthy, particularly how the checkerboard coloration is used to create convincing pictorial depth. $1400









Imam Ali Rug

This rug depicts the founder of Shia Islam, Ali. The writing says, “The Imam Ali, in whom God has given a great gift.” Note that his sword and green head dress.






“That rug really tied the room together”


This rug really does!
