KAZAK, Southern Central Caucasian
4ft 1in x 6ft 4in
Price: $7,500. (Featured in catalog Vol. 28, No. 2, p.1) Charming and entirely folkloric, this unusually subdued Caucasian Kazak rug features a fascinating repeated totemic design adorned with human figures zoomorphic motifs. Its quiet palette of sky blue, light crimson, and a rare mint green on a rich, crème ivory is desirable for a compatibility with a variety of decors. The main border shows “Wheel of Life’ mandalas drawn with a distinctive freeform quality in a wide assortment of colors. In very good medium pile condition, this piece is an excellent example of the authentic, antique rugs at Claremont 2.
