Antique Khirgiz Felt Long Rug - Few nomadic carpets have the boldness and graphic power of this extraordinary antique Khirgiz felt applique. A monumental long medallion with finials occupies most of the field, reinforced by multiple red outlines against an ivory ground. A thin border of circle rosettes encloses the composition. A fine irregular mesh of tiny globules covers the ivory ground, adding to its animated, kinetic quality. It is surrounded yet again by a neutral open field, which makes the design appear to float freely in space.
