At nearly 150 years old, the individual character and artistic command of this small rug's overall presentation are of intense interest to collectors. From the unique and iconic Karagashli subgroup of the Kuba tradition, its indigo blue field presents a scattering of incredibly folkloric polychrome animal figures prancing amidst snowflake motifs and rare apple green deconstructed dragons. The four-border suite that frames the composition is highlighted by a brilliant goldenrod border with a spacious rendition of a traditional 'leaf and calyx' design. Animated by a deeply saturated crimson red, three abstracted split palmettes medallions are connected by a vertical axis of more stylized dragons. At the same time, a diversity of stars, diamonds, and blossoms contribute to the general whimsy.
