Gabbehs Landscapes are quintessentially southern Persian tribal designs. Zollanvari’s interpretation of these designs range from the naturalistic pictorial to the naïve abstract. This latest creation emulates ‘Impressionist’ paintings in weave. Here, the colours shine bright with hope and transport the viewer to a spiritual land – the promised land perhaps, where all is good and the world is in order… the power of positivity!
Over the thirty years since the opening of Zollanvari AG in Zurich, Reza Zollanvari has collected the finest and most unusual old and antique Gabbehs he has been able find in Iran. Highlights of this collection can be viewed online.
