BORDJALOU KAZAK, Southeast Caucasian
4' 8" x 7' 3"
142cm x 221cm
Distinguished by their rich varied color and compositional balance, antique Kazaks are among the most sought-after rugs by our tribal aficionados. This dazzling nomadic jewel from the Bordjalou sub-style captures the dynamic Caucasian spirit that collectors crave. Four bold rugged medallions beam with visual energy, further vivified by magical value-shifting hues of saturated carnelian, paled gold, deep teal, and ardent cobalt countered to substantial effect by bright ivory. In the spacious field, tangential tribal adornments anchor this piece to a cultural continuum with revered cosmic wheels, double ram's horns, and even two long-bodied horses painted with diagonal stripes. A diverse series of complementary frames accentuate the casual symmetry of the interior. This striking, nearly 150-year-old, rug in remarkable condition would also make for an exciting addition to almost any interior decor.
