BOR 1971

Rich symbols in a stunning old formal rug. In faded soft charcoal and cream broken only by a few knots of red, turquoise, and cobalt. The motif is a particularly complex variation on common themes. There is a banded lozenge grid down the middle, packed with protective symbols, shifted to be slightly off center. Protective, but also a rug of hospitality as evidenced by the tea service depicted at the top. Personal and varied male symbols line the sides, themselves lined by a key border and dark selvedge. Dated 1971, it shows human touch, care, and use through significant wear, fade, and repairs particularly in the middle segment. But it is this wear that elevates the rug as testament to the utilitarian nature of these pieces and to the resourceful care put into them. In a low pile of Berber knots with one end finished in henna braid.
