5×6 Tabriz Style Pictorial Area Rug
Intricate almost to the point of being beyond belief. Look at the amazing detail in this entire handmade Tabriz Style Area Rug. This pictorial rug is a pictorial scene from one of 11th Century Persian poet Omar Khayyam’s poems.
The detail is simply astounding. This 100% wool rug has approximately 325 knots per square inch which certainly makes it among the 1% most finest woven rugs in the world. This is truly a master piece to be hung on a wall a enjoyed as a work of art. This piece would have taken the weaver months to make.
I have personally seen rugs of this quality and pictorial design such as this for $33,000.
Omar Khayyam (18 May 1048 – 4 December 1131) was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, and poet. He was born in Nishapur, in northeastern Iran, and spent most of his life near the court of the Karakhanid and Seljuq rulers in the period which witnessed the First Crusade.
As a mathematician, he is most notable for his work on the classification and solution of cubic equations, where he provided geometric solutions by the intersection of conics. Khayyam also contributed to the understanding of the parallel axiom. As an astronomer, he designed the Jalali calendar, a solar calendar with a very precise 33-year intercalation cycle.
There is a tradition of attributing poetry to Omar Khayyam, written in the form of quatrains (rubāʿiyāt رباعیات). This poetry became widely known to the English-reading world in a translation by Edward FitzGerald (Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, 1859), which enjoyed great success in the Orientalism of the fin de siècle.
