969. a audacious old Baluch Afghan rug

Old Afghan Baluch Rug

969. Provenance: Baluch tribal, Western Afghanistan

Size: 192 x 101 cm

Age: circa 1930

Condition: Good, with just a few minor rewoven spots.

Notes: An unsual and super-lively piece. Seemingly a highly stylized version of the 'tree of life'. Rich in tribal motifs and visual gems. Soft, lustrous handspun mountain wool and largely natural dyes (excluding the orange). Charming.
