Kilim Area Rug "Peacock" Dollhouse Miniature

Here is another Kilim Area Rug "Peacock" for your dollhouse.
In the center of the rug you can see a Peacock motif. The motif is found in folk stories of many Eastern cultures and appear frequently in rugs from Iranian tribal provinces (Kurdistan, Qashqai, Bakhtiari, Shiraz and Afshari Nasrabads rugs or Kilims). The Peacock is a mystical symbol from heaven bringing a message to the people on the earth (possibly this may symbolize the prophetic figure who brings the message from God to man!). He symbolizes a good omen.In some folkloric poems the peacock symbolizes the "fallen soul" or the soul that is attached to earthly things.

Tabby weaved and fringed on he both sides.
