Qashqa’i Bag Face

An unusual design for a South Persian piece, this overall pattern of small concentric red and yellow circles with white dots seems to pop out from the dark indigo blue field. It’s finely woven (169kpsi) with lustrous wool and a cloth-like handle. Notice after the forth row, the spacing of circles was expanded creating a more dynamic design
