The main design of the rug is prayer - niche with a tree motif that is very common in Iran and Asia Minor.
This design is probably an inspiration from the Garden of Eden.
The tree is flanked by two vases full of beautiful flowers with a pair of nightingales.
The niche is supported by two columns and its top is edged by some lobbed leaves.
The spandrels of the niche, in light color, are decorated with flowers joined together with stems and leaves.
The main border, carrying floral motifs linked by tendril - stems is flanked by two narrower secondary borders.
