Antique Caucasian Tree of Life Kazak Rug, Origin: The Caucasus, Circa: Final Quarter of the Nineteenth Century – Here is an intriguing antique Oriental rug – an antique Kazak rug with a Tree of Life motif from the Caucasus region during the later decades of the nineteenth century. Delightfully tribal, this antique Kazak carpet showcases the dynamic color range and design aesthetics that make Caucasian rugs among the most sought after examples by antique rug collectors. Featuring delightful flourishes throughout, this antique Caucasian rug begins with a series of whimsical and compelling borders. After narrow bands of first red and then blue, a larger border riddled with rectilinear design elements appears. Red, gold and blue triangles appear, fitting into a complementary strip of ivory triangles. This is bordered within by a further blue band, which then gives way to the rich, deep red field. Here, animal figures as well as abstract geometric figures appear throughout, at irregular and idiosyncratic intervals. Within the very center stands an impressive Tree of Life, rendered in blue-green hue that contrasts deeply against the red background. Delightful details throughout the tree give it an added depth and reinforce its powerful presence. A beautiful example, this antique Tree of Life Kazak carpet showcases some of the strongest qualities of Caucasian rugs and carpets.
