This persian carpet is a highly decorative mehrab design, made in Kashan.
The entire field is covered with large eslimi figures, floating against the midnight-blue background. This beautiful curve of eslimi shows the greatness of this persian carpet.
The expression of the border is contributing the great color balance to this carpet. The deep red background of the main border is opposing color to the midnight blue of the field, and the contrasts of the sub-border colored blue.
This carpet is a very precisely woven masterpiece, representing an entrance to a heaven or a paradise via the magic of the pattern.
