Persepolis Ancient stone Carved relief story rug. Persepolis is the Greek name (from perses polis for ‘Persian City’) for the ancient city of Parsa, located seventy miles northeast of Shiraz in present-day Iran. The name Parsa meant ‘City of The Persians’ and construction began at the site in 518 BCE under the rule of King Darius the Great ( who reigned 522-486 BCE) This rare rug depicts the battle of the king with a devil with the head of a horned lion and his victory. Hunting scenes depicted all around the main story with other birds and animals and flowers. This is a very rare Persian Tribal art from the nomadic Qashqai tribesmen.

100% hand spun wool, hand knotted in Shiraz Iran, circa 1970’s, Excellent Condition.

The Qashqai carpet continues to hold a special place in the world of oriental rugs, as it expresses a superlative level of both craftsmanship and creative inspiration. And it is no wonder, when two elements remain central in Qashqai culture – “il rah,” the tribal road, and their joyous weaving. As the Qashqai say – “Where I am is my carpet. Where my carpet and I am is my home.”
