Description Hand knotted with high-quality wool originating from Russia between 1890-1900, this antique Shahsavan rug enjoys a rich array of tribal red and blue colourways in a uniquely sized, segmented body with mirrored borders. The multi pronged motifs dominating the field feature a strong resemblance to oriental akrepi scorpion symbols, widely believed to represent liberty, protection, and attentiveness; each theme arguably accented by the bright, lively pink, blue, orange, and golden-beige colourways in this piece’s unique variations of dyes and interpretations alike.
