This rare antique Turkmen Kilim with Pile Bands created by Yuncu Turkmen nomads sometime in the mid 1800s or earlier came to me awhile ago.\n\u00a0\nClick to view slideshow.\n\u00a0\nNo wonder that when the dealer parted with it he sent me an email with the subject line\n\u201cYour RESPONSIBILITY of the Yuncu Turkmen Kilim\u201d\nThe email consisted of a heap of instructions \u2013 along the lines of the notes one might construct when one entrusts a child to a new babysitter.\n\u201cIt had\u00a0 a long and strong life. It had good owners and survived up to today. Until it came to me it had some problems and I did my best to give it a strength and will power for longer life. Now, it is your turn to be little nice and helpful to it.\u00a0 If you use it on the floor try to keep it away from dust as much as you can and \u2026\u2026. and \u2026. and\u2026.\u201d\n\nIt is\u00a0 so clear that he loved it very much and it probably pained him a bit to let this go.\nI love that he loved it so!\nThis piece deserved it.\n\u00a0\njaina mishra | wovensouls\nView Asset 1257 and more in the \u2018personal collection; gallery of\n\n\n#antiques #antiquetextiles #antiqueart #antiquekilim #yuncu #kilim #antiqueyuncu #antiqueturkish #art #\n\u00a0\nThe post Responsibility of Caring for an Antique Yuncu Kilim appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
