This impressive overall design rug is made of silk and comes from Caucasus - a mountain range located between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea in Caucasia which serves as a border between Asia and Europe. The carpets remarkable feature is the presence of the stylised boteh pattern which repeats itself in different colour columns and horizontal lines that cover the field of the carpet. The Boteh motif is a paisley-shaped design often with ornamentation inside and around the edges. The motif is often used to symbolize immortality and the season of autumn. The pattern is considered by some to be a flame, other interpretations also exists such as a leaf, a bush or a pine. The motif is an ancient symbol that appears to have its origins in ancient Persia. The field of this carpet is framed by a main border that is in slightly lighter colours - largely variations in hues. This carpet would look impressive in any setting.
