612. a verdant Bakhtiari panel garden carpet

Bakhtiari Persian Carpet

613. Provenance: Bakhtiari tribe, southern Iran

Size: 234 x 186 cm

Age: Circa 1980

Condition: Very good with high glossy pile. Some colour run.

Notes: A very fun rendition of the famous Bakhtiari garden panel design - possibly depicting a palace garden through the palace windows. Certainly the design speaks volumes of the dreams and aspirations of this tribal group (though many are now sedentary) who live in one of the harshest physical environments of Iran.
