This enrapturing antique Chinese rug pays tribute to important cultural symbols for luck and longevity with a minimalist flair that is elegant and sophisticated.

Chinese Rug, China, Early 20th Century – A complete collection of auspicious symbols for love, luck and longevity decorate this harmonious antique Chinese carpet. The striking sapphire-colored field displays innumerable tonal variations that are juxtaposed against creamy ivory borders. Fretwork spandrels adorn the corners of the saturated monochromatic field while cleverly disguising a series of auspicious butterfly-like figures. The subtly patterned borders represent Eastern minimalism at its best with understated accent colors and dimensional neutral-on-neutral motifs. Large-scale shou characters, the ultimate symbol of longevity, are elegantly interspersed with lucky bian fu bats and all eight trig rams of the ba gua, which represent the duality and esoteric concept of yin and yang.
