Description

I was attracted to this highly unusual Afshar tribal bag-face because of the depiction of 'guls' throughout the central field. It brings to mind where the Afshar nomads originated - eastern Turkistan - before the mass migrations of these people into Persia from the 11th - 15th centuries and with the main bulk of this tribe, settling in Kerman province. The 'guls' therefore, have a strong Central Asian influence here - something linked to their Turkmen background in Turkmenistan. The bag-face is in relatively good condition with a few minor repairs, but it is a stunning and rare example from this tribe, made around 1880.
Size: 81cm x 56cm (2' 8" x 1' 10").
Viewing by appointment only.
