Silk on silk - Iran

Not often possible to compare a handmade silk carpet to a beautiful painting, until you see this eye-catching and extremely fine handmade Persian silk pictorial Qom rug. Measuring 205cm x 135cm (6’7”x4’4”), its design demonstrates the story of the lost sheep painted by Famous British painter Alford Usher Soord (1868-1915). The story of a painting is the parable of the lost sheep, depicting a sheep stranded halfway down a steep cliff and the shepherd hanging perilously over the edge, risking his own life to save it. Some also relate this painting to the story of Prophet Ibraham and the sacrificing sheep which mentioned in both Koran and bible. For the buyers who are seeking unique silk carpets whether new or old this fabulous Persian rug ticks all the boxes. Apart of the fascinating story, the weave and quality are also the other highlights of this fantastic silk rug.
