Antique Khotan Rug 50325
Antique Khotan Rug, Origin: East Turkestan, Circa 1920 — Angular figures at the Khotan rug‘s core and borders create a rigid and powerful degree of motion. A relatively simple color scheme that combines the softness of ivory with the passion of tangerine allows the shapes to stand out on their own. Floating leaves and clustering blossoms line the richly defined borders, taking the viewer on a journey through the pleasing landscape at the rug’s center. The enormous diamond that defines the beautiful carpet contains a universe of flowers and vines, each flowing within and against each other to define the centerpiece and add character to the work as a whole.
