Abstract: 
The golden age of the textile art/ industry in Iran without a shadow of a doubt was the 10th and 11th centuries AH (16th-17th AD). Woven fabrics of this era were a remarkable combination of visual aesthetics, composition, motifs, colors and textures which were put together in variable and versatile forms. One of these beautiful compositions that is often seen in the fabric structure of this age is the use of medallion form/motif embellished with plants, animals and human motifs. Several studies indicated the frequent use of this form/motif in the textile which can be an evidence that medallion is one of the most widely used motifs of this period. According to the above-mentioned descriptions, the main purpose of this study was to investigate the structural patterns of the motif/form of medallion on Safavid textiles In this regard, the research question was: what is the structural diversity of the motif/form of medallion in decorating Safavid textiles and what is the position of this motif/form in the composition of these fabrics? To find the answer to this question, 16 fabric samples existing in books and art galleries of Safavid period were selected and then their structural features were analyzed. The research method was descriptive-analytical and was based on historical nature. The data was collected from libraries and the Internet and the analysis was qualitative. The results of the research showed that the medallion form/motif existed both explicitly and in disguise in most of the Safavid textiles. This structure adhered to the symmetry system and showed new and orderly combinations in the text of the work. The greatest use of this motif in the textiles was transitional and in the form of1/2 and1/4
