Dragon Carpet

Not on view

This embroidered rug features a design with repeating s-like motifs. They are arranged in four rows with a black one altenating with a white. The motif recalls a highly stylized dragon. This repeating pattern of stylized dragons gave the name "Dragon Carpet" to this type of rug which was produced in Trans-Caucasia.
