antique bagface kazak mountains region southwest caucasus

Antique Bag-face, Kazak Mountains Region, South-west Caucasus.



Item Ref



Stunning simplicity shown in the drawing of the flame symbols (botehs) on a deep indigo-blue field. Once part of a bag, this beautiful bag-face was knotted in the Kazak Mountains region of the south-west Caucasus during the mid 19th century. This is a rare weaving and it reminds me of the fabulous Marasali rugs made in the eastern Caucasus during the 19th century.
Size: 60cm x 51cm (2' 0" x 1' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: GT/BM
