Woven with thick knots of soft and lustrous Himalayan wool, this small Tibetan weaving draws a classic central medallion, composed of a garland of lotus blossoms, against a camel-colored ground. The border links floral forms with stylized scrolls and flower pots which, in Chinese iconography, are elements associated with scholasticism. Although the design borrows from Chinese models, the color, texture and weave of this piece is thoroughly Tibetan.
