What is an ??Oriental? Rug?
The term ??oriental rug has become an accepted designation for all the handknotted or handwoven carpets from the Middle or Far East. Called oriental or Persian, these works include carpets from Iran (ancient Persia) China, India, Pakistan, Turkey, Afghanistan, Romania, and Russia. Although these are by no means the only rug producing countries, they are the major purveyors of the craft today.(In this text, the term rugs and carpet are used interchangeably.
A Brief History of the Art.
It is quite conceivable that one may trace the roots of this time honored craft to the beginning of man??s civilization; however, it has never been established where the art rug weavers first originated. Despite some startling recent discoveries, most experts refer to one carpet in particular as being the oldest in existence.
In 1949, while excavating a series of burial tombs in the Pazyryk Valley, located in Southern Siberia, Russian archaeologist S.I. Rudenko made an amazing discovery. Included within the many artifacts was found an incredibly well preserved wool rug. Dated by the process known as Carbon 14, the rug was determined to have been constructed over 2,500 years ago! Although there are many opinions as to the origin of this remarkable find, most scholars agree that it is of Persian origins.
Regardless of where the art form was conceived, it is widely accepted that among the major roles players in the development of the craft were the creative artisans of ancient Persia. It was especially during the 16th and 17th centuries, under the tutelage of Shah Abbas the Great, that the art of rug weaving reached its zenith. Many magnificent masterpieces were produced which set the standard of the craft for all rugs producing regions. Many of these brilliant examples are currently in Museums around the world (the Pazyryk find is in the Hermitage in Leningrad), and in the hands of collectors who were astute enough to recognize their worth long ago.
