Tribal and with awesome geometric art, this antique rug woven in Caucasus mountains definitely commands attention and in the greatest way. It is no young lamb...this gorgeous gem has 150+ years of life. It is not only one of a kind, it is simply DISTINCT.
It features art history and symbolic elements that tell more of its story. Hand woven with vegetable dyed wool and on a wool foundation, the artisans featured what collectors identify as eagles in the field. Most of the cultural symbols have their origins wrapping around folk mythology, folklore, religion, art and history. The eagle is a symbol of courage, wisdom and freedom to these mountain nomads.
Low wool pile on a wool foundation. All natural, vegetable dyed wool. Has a nice, floppy handle. Worn. From circa 1880. Please see pics for full condition and character.
