Since 13th century (A.H.), we have been encountering the so-called pictorial rugs in Iran. These rugs have their own styles and sizes and reflect two major points: first, a kind of change in fabrication and consumption taste and second, the influence of other types of art and social reformations. Iranian pictorial rugs artists have designed and woven these rugs using themes such as ancient or contemporary Iranian kings’ portraits. Among which, King Hooshang (Hooshang Shah) is one of the figures who can be seen in these fabrics and weavings very often. Studies show that King Hooshang stands on a peculiar position among Iranian mythical kings. He is supposed to be the discoverer of many of the instrumental and influential elements of the human life and civilization in Iranian mythology. On the other hand, he is believed to have so many praiseworthy and humane traits. These traits and features can justify the presence of this mythical king’s portrait in art works and particularly rug weavings.
