South East Caucasus, Moghan region Shahsavan Rug

South East Caucasus, Moghan Region Shahsavan Rug 

This knotted rug by the Shahsavan of the Moghan region displays a very rare design of geometric stylised palmettes, each enclosing an “S”-figure. The palmettes are arranged into steep colour diagonals and stand out very clearly from the earth brown, partially corroded ground. The angular drawing style of the motifs indicates that the design derives from kilim models. – Some of the brown sections have been repiled; good condition.Dated 1279 AH = 1863 Size 120 x 205 cm
