Antique Shirvan Rug with amazing geometric motifs
Lots of Botehs offering lessons in the subject of permutations and combinations- with the variation in colors and fillers used in the Botehs
Several animals roaming the main field.
And birds that have been sent off to fill up the borders to snack on little insects.
This aspect of highly developed borders is unique. [See 1540 Shekarlu Rug for a similar rendition of borders]
It is one of those rugs that elicit a fresh 'wow' with a creative element I hadn't seen before, no matter how many times I revisit it!
73 X 36 inches
If provenance means anything to the buyer, this rug has provenance - it was previously owned by a famous rug book author James Opie.
