The Carpets of Afghanistan (Oriental Rugs, Vol 3)

$65.00

Richard Parsons treats the reader to not only a veritable feast of carpets and rugs, but also to a fascinating journey through the history of a diverse, colourful, multi-racial country. He shares his respect and admiration for Afghanistan’s stoical people, who somehow, despite political upheavals, forced resettlement, a harsh climate and often primitive nomadic living conditions, manage to produce exquisite works of art which reflect great pride in their many-faceted heritage. Afghan rugs are instantly appealing due to their traditional colours and bold designs, from sumptuous piled purdahs to flat woven prayer rugs.
