A Persian Heriz with a “universal energy” star medallion and cypress tree, tree of life and leaf motifs that branch out in all directions from the medallion, symbolising prosperity and eternal life.
Heriz is a village on the slopes of snow-capped Mount Sabalan in northwestern Iran. Heriz rugs remain the most popular of all northwestern Persian rugs and are regarded as exceptionally durable. Part of the reason for this is because Mount Sabalan sits on a major deposit of copper. The drinking water contains traces of copper which is consumed by the sheep, resulting in wool of unmatched strength.
This rug is in excellent condition with even wear consistent with age and low pile.
