Beautiful Silk and Wool Antique Persian Kerman Rug by Master Aboul Ghasem Kermani, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa date: 1880 – Through a masterful use of movements and outlines, Master Aboul Ghasem Kermani transitions this elegant antique rug from the abstract to the concrete. Vibrantly flowing forms begin at the upper edge of the rug’s core, standing out against the rigid border, as if dropping downward like curling vines. These forms circle around a larger architectural relief, which itself leads the viewer’s eyes to the beautiful scene below. Underneath the relief is a massive tree, providing much-needed shade to a host of animals, who gather around a kneeling man. Several smaller trees stand out in the background, their sizes a direct contrast to the majesty of the tree at the Persian rug’s core.
