Koerdische nomaden - Verneh, Kelim - 270 cm - 83 cm

Description
Koerdische nomaden - Verneh, Kelim - 270 cm - 83 cm
Wool on wool - Caucasus - Early 20th century

Kurdish nomads from the south of the Caucasus.
Easily recognisable by the pattern - those vertical rectangles with a connecting piece.
They also knotted high-quality heavy carpets this way.
This kilim was nicely preserved, also due to the fact that it was mounted on a
sturdy base. View the detail photos.

Birds and a caravan with camels are depicted.
The camels in particular are popular among collectors.
This kilim can be put on the floor but it would also look very nice on a wall.
Beautiful piece of folk art from the early 20th century.
