Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
Elaborately created with love, this Gendge has all the qualities of a superb rug.
The candy-striped borders present on each boteh are delightful – with 2 colors in alternate boxes of some of the botehs.
Further, the well developed florets on the stigma, the symbolism of the flowers within the boteh depicting the potency of life are all noteworthy.
The most enjoyable elements are the figures – the two men (yes men) and their animals. This feature is proof of the soul poured into this artwork by the weaver.

Has some losses with wear in some parts. The condition is far from perfect.
Excellent example of the category.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
