This simple but highly evocative prayer rug traces a basic "mihrab" niche, composed of two lines, against an open camel field. Sparse columns of colorful animals flank either side as a solitary rosette is drawn in the bottom center. A thin border of colorful small linked palmettes meanders against a narrow white ground. The exact weaving group of this dynamic minimalist piece is unclear, though Luri or Kurd are both likely possibilities.
