Sumak rug

19th C (3rd Q)
Caucasus
DESCRIPTION:

This classic Caucasian flat-woven sumak rug draws a column of three large blue eight-pointed stars against a madder-red field. Interestingly, the thin white border drawn around each blue star links up at adjoining points to form a subtle lattice. Each star is flanked at four corners by octagons reflecting a lineage going back to pile pieces of the 16th and 17th centuries. Indeed, these 19th century sumak pieces are known for preserving various archaic drawing elements.
