- This is a high-quality modern hand-woven Persian rug made with good quality wool, so the pile is lush and soft. The knot count is high, giving the pile a velvety feel. It has been cleaned and washed and there was no colour run, indicating stable good quality dyes. The colours are of a high level of saturation.
- The scene depicted is an age-old one of riders on horseback hunting gazelle with bows and spears surrounded by trees.
