Vintage Art Deco Ecuadorian Rug by Olga Fisch, Origin: Ecuador, Circa: Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is a unique and beautiful vintage carpet – a vintage Art Deco rug that was woven in Ecuador during the middle years of the twentieth century with an exciting composition by noted designer Olga Fisch. An evocatively beautiful rug, this vintage Art Deco carpet depicts a series of crude animal drawings that are immediately reminiscent of the cave paintings that mark mankind’s first foray into creative expression. Set against a field of ivory, the artist has rendered a series of five large antlered animals, each a different color and, superficially, each in a different stage of completeness.
The primitive nature of the drawing is evocative of early human societies; without a single shred of other commentary, Fisch has created a piece that transports the viewer way back into the earliest annals of prehistory. The strong line work and bold coloration only reinforces the aesthetic effect. A beautiful an unique work of art, this vintage Art Deco rug from Ecuador is a truly marvelous example.
