About The Artist:

Kashan is a city in the Isfahan province of Iran. Isfahan was the capital of the Safavid empire during which rug weaving reached its zenith. Rugs woven in Isfahan and the surrounding areas often reproduce or were strongly influenced by the classic designs of the Safavid era. The hunting design in particular was highly prized and specifically commissioned by rulers in both the Safavid and Mughal empires. In the 16th century, Safavid leaders in Persia and Mughal leaders in sub-continental India were commissioning ornate hunting carpets depicting an elite sport and beloved pastime. Thanks to a date and master weaver signature woven in one hunting carpet from Kashan that is displayed in Milan, scholars know that the hunting format, including mounted huntsmen and archers set against a lush forested background, emerged during the mid-16th century.
