1718 Antique White Field Caucasian Village Kazak Rug
Fabulous little White Field Village Kazak Rug with Birds & Exquisite Boteh
This is to be seen more as a work art for the walls than as a rug for floor. The unusual boteh motifs and the overall drawing make this weaving stand out amongst Kazak weavings, even after the general character of that group is maintained. The sould of the weavers is infused into this artwork through the inclusion of the two birds / dragons both walking away towards the Eastern horizon...
Soft high pile
Very pleasing naive art in this village rug
Missing lines - minor flaws. Condition is not perfect
Estimated to be from the mid 1800s
Small size 3ft 8 inches x 2 ft 7 inches - perfect as a wall hanging!
