Antique Khotan Rug 46595
Antique Khotan Rug, Country of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa 1900 — This beautifully woven antique Khotan rug showcases an elegantly paradoxical design. Symmetrical patterns are simultaneously displayed with asymmetrical colors, resulting in a breathtaking display of creativity in the traditionally represented motifs. Vivid reds, bright tangerines, dusky mauves, soft yellows, and dark blues are set against each other within several layered borders, which lead the eye inwards towards the core of the rug. At the center of the rug, the viewer can appreciate the angular movements of the boxes within, each featuring a stunning mandala at their center, broke up at their four corners with small, graceful flowers.
