Sewan Kazak rug

Early 19th Century
Caucasus
DESCRIPTION:

This early Sewan Kazak draws an elongated white double-niche against a madder-red field. An inner medallion draws layers of pointed ten-sided shields punctuated with curved latch-hook devices. Color is vivid and spectacular with particularly sophisticated pairings of complementary contrasting colors such as gold with aubergine and red with green. Of particular merit is the main border which uses multi-colored triangular arched and curled devices in a modular manner to create dynamic secondary diamond and square forms with evocative 'z' motifs formed from negative space.
