Antique Tribal Caucasian Kazak Rug, Origin: Caucasus, Circa: 1900 – Among collectors and admirers of antique Oriental rugs, the weaves of the Caucasus are some of the most prized. And though this region may boast an impressive range of distinct styles, the Caucuses are especially renowned for the unique, tribal qualities woven into their rugs. This particular piece is a fantastic example of this tribal heritage, boasting a series of design motifs that are rich with Caucasian cultural significance. A series of three large geometric figures which resemble stars form the main action of the composition as they shine out against the crimson field. But the most appealing design element of this beautiful Kazak rug is the series of small figures that populate the field, in the negative space between the geometric stars. Steeped with significance, these design elements vault this rug from an attractive work of art to a culturally significant composition that speaks to the design and aesthetic preferences for an entire group of people. Only the finest works of art can boast such an honor, making this Kazak rug something truly special.
