Antique East Turkestan Khotan Rug, Country of Origin: East Turkestan, Circa Date: 1900– This is a beautiful example of the highly-coveted Khotan rug, which blends elements of the many cultures and faiths along the Silk Road. The circular geometry of the medallions is typical of traditional Chinese design while the floral motif around the border is reminiscent of Persian design. Hidden within the crenelated patterns along the border are svastikas, ancient symbols of auspiciousness in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The muted, understated color palette in this rug – creams, blues and browns = make it an excellent addition to a hallway or other narrow space.
