Talish Prayer

c. 1900
Caucasus
DESCRIPTION:

Blending narrow, delicate proportions with bold saturated color and fantastic contrast, this Talish prayer rug is a novel and inspired interpretation of the classic white-filled Caucasian prayer rug type. Woven with soft lustrous wool and using saturated natural dyes, the color range and intensity of the flowers of the field are accentuated by a white ground. This is then amplified by the multi-colored stripes and octagon devices of the borders. Of particular merit is the prominent use of double-dyed green and other secondary colors like oranges and at least two shades of purple/violet.
