Shahsevan flatweave

Late 19th C
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Whether undertaken in pile, sumak, or other techniques, Shahsevan weaving is known for its expert use of color and frequent zoomorphic imagery. This exceptional panel draws an array of birds and other creatures using silk floss in a weft float technique on a fine indigo-dyed cotton textile. Gold, green, and cochineal red silk shimmer throughout as the rows of animals are replaced by abstract geometric ornament towards the top. This happy textile is readily accessible and easy to appreciate, though its exact function may be debated. Collection of Frank Tosto
