Late 19th century, 374 x 105 cm, Central Anatolia, Konya region

This Obruk kilim woven in a long format displays the typical designs of the region, but its palette is strikingly dark. The red and brown motifs stand out less distinctly from the dark brown ground of the field than they do in other Obruk kilims woven in lighter colours. The same juxtaposition of reds and browns is seen in the wide border, but the latter is set off from the central field by a bold white outline of stepped points. – One corner has been rewoven, otherwise well preserved.
