 "Figure 36 (opposite). Unusual Mashhad pictorial rug with a horse and rider and tree.  The design here is based upon many found on Persian Miniature paintings of previous centuries.  Like the rugs of Kerman, Mashhad rugs of the last several decades also showed a cochineal red.  Approx.91.5 x 62.5 ins. (232 x 159cm)."
