Village rugs often incorporate bold angular motifs, resulting in simpler, more abstract patterns. Stylized weeping willows, cypress, and other types of trees fill the saffron-colored field of this rug.

In Persian art depictions of gardens with a variety of flora and fauna often illustrate the notion of paradise.
