Daghestan Prayer Rug
Item Details
Description
Mid 19th century, 168 x 91 cm, North East Caucasus

Judging by its knotting structure, this white-ground prayer rug was woven in Daghestan although the long format, the field design of angular botehs and the bridge-shaped arch positioned high up initially suggest a provenance in Akstafa. The Daghestan attribution is supported by the main border design of cruciform devices placed on a dark brown ground. The first two rows of botehs are arranged in changing directions, whereas from the third row up all botehs face right and combine into steep colour diagonals. Purchased at Eberhart Herrmann’s Munich gallery in 1984. – New overcasting along the sides, corroded brown sections, good overall condition.
