Gazni Medallion Hand Knotted Wool Rug - 297x219
Gazni rugs often display two or three geometrical medallions, as this one does, sometimes with characteristic S-shaped patterns. The principal colour is red, though bold, warm shades of green and yellow are used as well; it also incorporates usually a beige border. Each border has a different ground colour, going from red at the outer to blue as the inner border, with a soft apple green in the central borders. As with all hand made rugs, each piece brings with it a spectrum of shades of colouring depending upon from which angle one views it from thus remaining finely balanced refraining from being too bold. Gazni rugs have always been popular in Europe, largely because of their robust quality and their resemblance of the Kazak antique carpets.
