Afshar bagface
South Persia , 19th c (4th Q)
This bagface, demonstrates the debt of Afshar weavers to Persianate textile models, particularly shawls. The flatwoven fasteners of this piece, however, depict the sainak, a familiar geometric motif known from Central Asian ensis and even some much older pile weavings from Anatolia. The negative space formed by the botehs of the field is particularly good and portions seem almost bird-like.
