(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“NEW ARRIVAL")Antique Kuba rugs are a source of infinite fascination for aficionados of ancient Caucasian carpet motifs, who can discern their symbolic origins. This very impressively balanced, clearly drawn piece is particularly engaging with the two spectacular winged ivory Phoenix birds. Also in ivory are four enigmatic dragon forms distinct among the latchhooks of the central diamond, just to mention two of a panoply of evocative motifs. This rug's perfectly spacious trio of distinctive bands introduce warm goldenrod, forest green and azure into the ambitious visual program. Powerful art works such as this are especially exciting when hung on a wall visible from a distance. Learn About This Rug Type
