Red Tree Luri Shekarlu

A very rare rug woven by the Shekarlu tribe from southwest Persia. Think of a dream icon from a tribal rug and it is likely to have found a place on this dramatic tribal weaving – the deep indigo field is filled with animals, flowers, birds and other zoomorphic and floral depictions from the weaver’s nomadic life.

The wide white ground border is a classic Shekarlu signature, containing bold latch hooks or diamonds, interconnected with a straight geometric linkage and spaced with horizontally laid reciprocal bird head icons. The most unusual feature – never seen before – is a large red blob like shape, most likely representing a tree in full bloom, interspersed with floral and bird elements.
