Southern Iraqi tapestry, wool on wool, 60-70 years old, 4x7 feet.
These tapestries are done on a "bayeta" base fabric like so many of the others from this area. They tend to be older than the other rugs at the shops mostly because they were more delicate, so they were cared for more closely, like quilts in the west.
This one has very well-preserved color and a lot of great detail work. It would have hung on the walls of the house or inside a tent.
*Note: A tapestry is a thin flat-weave textile traditionally meant for hanging on the wall.
