Antique Kilim Rug, Caucasus – Thoroughly rustic yet equally sophisticated, this antique Caucasian kilim embodies the chromatic clarity, stylistic purity and visibility of ancient traditions that make these tribal weavings such prized pieces among collectors and decorators alike. The wonderfully decorative field is broken down into a series of multi-width stripes that form a continuous pattern appointed with a lively melange of multi-colored motifs and protection symbols. The widest stripes feature a fantastic selection of inset burdock motifs with crisp contrasting outlines and finger-like extensions. Alternating triangles, zigzagging running-water accents and barber-pole pinstripes emphasize the symbolic richness of the bold striped pattern. These familiar symbols are separated by rows of partial stars recognized by their perfectly pixilated zigzagging edges. Brilliant cherry reds, clear blues, pristine whites and buttery yellows add to the richness of the age-old symbols.
