Antique Caucasian Kazak Rug

Lot 0013 Details

Description
Size: 5 ft x 8 ft (1.52 m x 2.44 m) - Antique Tribal Kazak Caucasian Rug, Caucuses, c. 1900 - Among collectors and admirers of antique Oriental rugs, the weaves of the Caucuses are some of the most prized. And though this region may boast an impressive range of distinct styles, the Caucuses are especially renowned for the unique, tribal qualities woven into their rugs. This particular piece is an example of this tribal heritage, with a series of design motifs that are rich with Caucasian cultural significance. A series of three large geometric figures which resemble stars form the main action of the composition as they shine out against the crimson field. The feature design element of this beautiful Kazak rug is the series of small figures that populate the field, in the negative space between the geometric stars. Steeped with significance, these design elements vault this rug from an attractive work of art to a culturally significant composition that speaks to the design and aesthetic preferences for an entire group of people.
