Description

This piece from the early 20th century, is a horse blanket. Beautifully woven, the blanket features a seemingly chaotic and joyful range of icons depicting people, animals and flora. The blanket is a kilim weaving, into which wool knots have been inserted from the front, to add a three-dimensional layer of symbols. The tassels on the edges of the blanket add to the rustic beauty of this weaving.
