The 3’8” x 5’8” Isfahan from Iran. This finely woven
piece has a wool pile that is woven on a silk foundation. It has over 460 knots
per square inch, which allows the sweeping curves of the vines to look so
smooth. If you look carefully into the design you will see various birds
throughout, with some singing and other in flight. The design is balanced, yet
if you look at it you will notice that it is an asymmetrical pattern. The field
is green and it has a red border. It has accents of navy, olive green, dark
green, ivory, maroon, light brown, light blue and a touch of pale pink.
