(Decorative) The tribal spirit is admirably captured in the highly geometricised medallions of this mid-century Karaja wide runner known as a kelege. Boldly graphic bright ivory triple medallions adorn the center, while the subtler jade green medallions add welcome supportive notes to the composition. This incredibly joyous weaving offers a fascinating array of tribal ornamentation that bursts forth with an extravaganza of color including emerald, blazing saffron, dusky rose, azure and sapphire blue. The extraordinary heavy full pile condition makes this incredibly vibrant, energetic piece not only more appealing to the eye, but also very practical for many decades of further use.
