|Shanama War Rug about April 1979 Uprising in Heart|
Wear but sound. Most wear to middle, borders fine.
|Al Buraq Pillow|
A single blue Al-Buraq with red wings and tail rests in the center of an orangey-brown field in front of a field of flowers. A classic Turkmen border frames the composition.
The main structure of the rug is backed with a plain woven backing which is attached at the selvedges and is a continuation of the bottom kilim, forming a sort of 'bag'.
|Figures with Cup |
This interesting rug features imagery possibly related to the poetry of Omar Khayyam. The main motif consists of two busts, one man and one woman. They wear headscarves and the woman looks as if she is offering the man a cup of wine. This motif is repeated multiple times down the rug, the facial expressions slightly changing each time.
The border on this rug is really interesting-- made up of what looks to be leaping deer, one of the deer (in the lower right) has a red eye.
|Two Men with Guns by Wall under Tree War Rug |
The condition of this rug is good. It shows some wear, but the pile is full and complete. There are some vertical rows where pile knots show on front of rug. The rug also has a few dropped knots and a few sarnach. The main motif of men with rifles under trees is repeated and flipped once and separated by four large birds.
