Antique Khotan Rug, East Turkestan, circa 1900 – Symbolic patterns and influences taken from the east and west are masterfully combined in this elegant antique rug from Khotan. Branching pomegranate shrubs and pomegranate fruits arranged on plates emphasize the significance of these important motifs in Khotan and East Turkestan. Ruyi cloud motifs from the east, decorative leaves with spiraling flourishes, and geometric protection symbols dot the flaxen yellow field. The softly rounded medallion features ogival curves and complementary colors that unite the taupe and clear Prussian blue color scheme. Diverse borders decorated with a series of unrelated motifs surround the field in a manner typical for weavers in East Turkestan, who traditionally add a great amount of detail to their prominent borders.
