This Kazak Prayer Rug is included in Kazak Rugs: Colored Interstice Rug Borders - A Theory

Ralph Kaffel Caucasian Prayer Rugs. London, UK. Laurence King in Association with Hali, 1998.

"Prayer Rugs" by Ralph Kaffel was a pleasant surprise. Instead of just another pseudo-scientific rehash of someone else’s field work Kaffel has presented us with a lesson in connoisseurship. All too often someone will read all the literature and present their distillation as fact. In "Prayer Rugs" Kaffel show us his sources and when there is disagreement he shows us the differences in opinion. In the discussion of Daghestan Prayer rugs he even gives us the opinions of auction house specialists such as Mary Jo Otsi and Jo Kris. This book is not ethnology or anthropology it is about collecting Caucasian Prayer rugs and in that light it gets a solid 5 stars.
