Monumental kilim - collector's item.
Mighty shield patterns adorn this piece.
This pattern originates from Armenian culture.
This kilim was made around 1880, in the Quba area which is now Azerbaijan. Only in 1920 the Armenians were deported by the Russians from there to the western part of the Caucasus.
This pattern stayed in use there.
You could compare it with Kazak shield rugs.
