Veramin torba

19th C (4th Q)
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Veramin, a caravan town in central Persia, is particularly known for its long, shallow, piled bags or 'torbas' that make use of elements from Turkmen design. The exact relationship between these weavings and Turkmen traditions is unclear but some of the best examples tend to utilize earlier drawing than might be expected in a later nineteenth-century piece. The proportion of the central gul drawn in this piece is impressive spanning practically the entire height of the field. Flanking its sides, the traditional Turkmen bird-headed devices are drawn against white ground. In the center, an eight-pointed star hovers against deep saturated rose-madder.
