So lion image gabbeh has found its way to tents and people’s life. These gabbehs are usually spread on the rugs and in center of tents. Seeing this type of gabbeh, among vast fields and mountains, gives special brightness to tent space. Here, lion is the symbol of “Tent Ground”, and also braveness and pride of tent owner, as well.
