Full Description
A beautiful and unusual Caucasian Kazak Fachralo prayer rug whose deep red central field is dominated by three large medallions toped by three wavy bands with crenelated lines. "The motif of vertically linked medallions is quite often found in other types of oriental carpet. In prayer rug, however, it is quite rare – other than on Caucasian Kazaks, Karabaghs, Genjes and Akstafas." (Ralph Kaffel, Caucasian Prayer Rugs, Lawrence King Publishing, in association with Hali Publications, London, 1998, pp. 66). The variety of motifs in the rich red field, its irregular depiction, the naiveté of some of them all suggest a village origin. The main border displays, on the sides, a beautiful and unusual motif.
