Hand Knotted Scrolling Vines 8ft X 10ft Mughal Carpet
This hand knotted carpet depicts vines with blooming palmettes, poppies, irises and serrated lancet leaves. In the early seventeenth century, Mughal design shifted away from idealised Persian floral motifs to naturalistic ones, most likely as a result of traveling European merchants. These visitors brought with them books, tapestries, and paintings which were of great curiosity to the Mughal court. In particular, botanical books featuring highly detailed, block-printed images of plants are thought to have intrigued Mughal artists.
