Stencil - The Persian Rostam Tile


Design Description


Are you familiar with the epic of Rostam and Sohrab? It is the quintessential Persian heroes journey tale written in exceptionally elegant poetry. This design is also very Persian and consists of motifs from the 10th century within which the Shahnameh was written. This elaborate design carries a distinct aura that it shares with the famous Iranian epic: the flowers, vines, and intersecting squares all hint at that particular time and locale.
