South East Caucasus, Moghan region Shahsavan Horse Cover

Late 19th Century South East Caucasus, Moghan region Shahsavan Horse Cover

Woven in a single piece, this horse cover shows six wide horizontal bands separated by narrow borders in the lower section. Three bands depict animals moving from right to left – peacocks in the two blue bands and quadrupeds in the central red band. The three other bands contain typical Shahsavan border designs. The upper part, with the tabs which were placed around the horse’s neck, is far more open in design: two blue compartments separated by a design section of red and green serrated bands each contain a further six animals. The same serrated design, this time in blue and red, adorns the tabs. – Very well preserved.Size 118 x 167 cm
