A Bergama prayer rug, West Anatolia

Catalogue Note

See Christie's East, New York, 22 January 1991, Lot 122 for a comparable to this rare type, with closely related spandrel design, "[...] a geometrical, confronted motif which recalls a Simourgh or bird-like figure, with long feathery tail.  The flowing border with sinuous elevation motif representing the moon observation."
