Luri and the rest of the Persid languages belong to the southwestern subbranch of the western Iranian languages branch.

Luri is also a commune of the Haute-Corse département in France, on the island of Corsica.

 Gary McCue: Tashi Kabum
Tashi Kabum and Luri caves both have frescoes of religious figures painted along the lower wall panel opposite to the cave entrance, as well as in the dome of the ceiling.
The Luri cave has more frescoes along the wall panel and the deities and teachers are different, yet every figure in the wall panels of both caves is framed by an almost square, decorative robe design which extends from the shoulders, then falls in near identical stylized folds to the sides.
Luri also has a temple and adjacent rooms built onto the cliff face near the cave entrance, though it is possible Tashi Kabum may also have had an adjacent temple, or other rooms or enclosures built onto the cliff, but long ago crumbled away from their moorings.

Complicating the differentiation of Luri weavings from their neighbors is the fact that, according to Opie, “Design similarities in Luri and Qashqa’i kilims, saltbags, and many rugs reveal the extent to which Qashqa’i tribes absorbed Luri elements during past centuries, thereby acquiring traditional Luri patterns.”
The composition of the Luri rugs, although indeed similar and the reason for much of the confusion and wrongful attribution, are less complex in form.
We use the Luri label when certain elements occur in combination and form a network of probabilistic cues, none of which would be inadequate by itself to justify the classification.
