The Celtic influence is present in the compositional elements of this antique European rug from Ireland. The calligraphic character of the bold linework found around the central medallion of the rug is set against an ivory background, drawing more attention towards the center of the rug. The linework in the flowery medallion of this European rug causes rhythm in the composition, allowing the central composition to move and breathe. Details such as multiple borders, stylized thistles, and delicate flowers make this rug an intruiging piece that always seems to be moving and changing.
