Splendid Antique Caucasian Akstafa Rug, Country Of Origin: Caucasus, Circa date: 1900 – Akstafa is an area located in the southwestern portion of the Caucasus Mountains. This remarkable piece shows the skill and beauty that distinguishes antique rugs from this area.

This beautiful Akstafa / Shirvan rug uses an earthy color palette of browns, reds, and blues. It has a primitive feel and is perfect for a nature-inspired room. One of the features that stands out about this rug is the inclusion of the repetition of a motif known as the “Akstafa peacock.” This motif is one of the characteristics that allow you to distinguish antique Caucasian rugs, such as this one, from others in the area.

The peacock is a symbol that has various royal associations and cosmological meanings. This style transformed the tail of the peacock into a weaver’s comb. An interesting feature of this rendition is that the peacocks on one end are reversed so that their heads point towards the center of the rug. This may have been an intentional attempt to “seal” the symbols of the rug so they would have a greater effect.

Every aspect of this rug was carefully designed with intention. It is more than just a painting or drawing. It represents the cultural mythology and history of the people who created it. This rug does not have the precision that you often find in rugs produced in the formal weaving schools of the cities. It has a quality that connects it to the artist and the harsh climate in which they lived.

This rug would be perfect for a longer entranceway, or perhaps a narrow kitchen.
