Seychour Rug, Caucasus, Late 19th Century – This superb antique Caucasian Seychour rug exemplifies the region’s symbol-rich culture and phenomenal design traditions. The emotive burgundy-red ground is emblazoned with a triad of archetypal sunburst medallions that complete the traditional color scheme. Each stunning medallion features a grand quatrefoil compartment enclosed by latch-hook limbs and radiant appendages that are outlined in contrasting colors. The bold red ground and the beautifully decorated medallions house a wealth of impeccably drawn protection symbols. Geometric animals, spiraling endless knots, angular S-hooks and stylized botanical motifs dot the boldly colored field. The symbol-rich theme continues in the elaborate borders and guard bands, which feature crenellated fences and protective S-hooks that are designed to capture malevolent spirits.
