Beautiful Vintage European Hunting Scene Celtic Rug by Artist George Bain, Country of Origin: Scotland, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – A delightful, variegated pattern spills over the creamy yellow body of this European vintage rug. Featuring a variety of complex Celtic knot-work, the hunting scene rug design is centered with a red octagon that brims with entwined snakes. This serpentine quartet forms one decoration, their heads and tails nestled against each other, encouraging the viewer to trace the coils of each body through the weave. A dark gray band embellished with curving shapes edges the central ornament. A network of myriad twirling knots fills the central field around the serpents, resplendent in red, yellow, pale blue and green. Several animals decorate the symmetrical design, including fish, birds and boars. On each narrow end, a mounted hunter and elegant deer pose amid curling lines. A braided band of multicolored serpents on a dark gray backdrop surrounds the central field, continuing the maze-like theme.
