LORI PAMBAK KAZAK, Southern Central Caucasian
6ft 7in x 10ft 1in
(Featured in catalog Vol. 28, No. 1, p.25) An atypically large antique Caucasian rug in superb condition, this striking, jewel-toned Lori Pambak carpet epitomizes the riveting artistry and color palette that this Kazak weaving region utilized. The best rugs from the Lori Pambak subgroup are renowned for the saturated intensity of their color. Here, incredibly potent carnelian, ivory, and signature forest green exert an irresistible magnetism that is especially captivating in a modern, minimalist interior or conversely in a refined paneled room. Free-floating tribal totems, including charming, naively rendered animal forms, delightfully reinforce the tribal nature of this piece.
