Beautiful Artistic Vintage Afghan Camel Motif Tent Band Rug, Country of Origin / Rug type: Vintage Afghanistan Rug, Circa Date: Last Quarter of the 20th Century – With a long design that is meant to convey concrete forms rather than abstract ideas, this beautiful vintage rug is an excellent choice for hallways and other long sections of ground that could benefit from a unifying touch. A single simple border surrounds the heart of the piece, with shrubs in a variety of different colors leading the eyes in a counter-clockwise direction around the frame. At the heart of the Afghan camel motif tent band rug, several camels are tied together, led in a single direction by a man in a turban. A dog follows the caravan of five camels, each of which feature their own color and presence. Though the man’s profession is unclear, his sense of purpose is present, and viewers can sense that there is a clear sense of motivation behind his distant gaze. Two of the camels that are featured in this vintage Afghan rug turn away to look at the viewer, as if inviting them on the journey.
