Rugs & Art. Tribal Bird Rugs & Others. A Buenos Aires Collection

By Abel Trybiarz

Quietly built over many years by a Buenos Aires collector, this previously unknown tribal rug collection has at its heart a superb selection of characteristic antique knotted-pile rugs, woven by the nomadic tribes of the Khamseh Confederation in southwestern Iran during the 19th century. In addition, smaller numbers of related weavings are featured, made by neighbouring southern Persian nomadic tribes such as the Qashqa’i and the Afshar, as well as two highly focused groups of Shikli Kazak and ‘keyhole’-design village rugs from the Transcaucasus. The collector/author’s parallel English and Spanish texts explain his passion for these stunning woven creations, and offer an interesting individual take on the psychology of collecting, informed by his perspective as a successful architect, sculptor, draftsman and painter in the Argentinian capital.
