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 with hooked cornerpieces at each end, all defined by a wine red outline against a tan field. A thin vinescroll border encloses the composition. A fine irregular mesh of tiny circles covers the entire design, 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.
