I just love the nomadic artistic expression in these utilitarian bread sofrehs, this one woven by an Afshar woman during the early part of the 20th century in Kerman province, southern Persia.
The purpose of these flatweaves was for kneading the dough and rolling it into balls before flattening it out to make the wonderful 'lavash' or flat-bread.
These 19th and early 20th century sofrehs exude nomadic art at its finest and look amazing hung on the walls of western houses today. They are also a lot cheaper than purchasing a Klee, Mondrian or Rothko!!!
