Kilim from Fethiye, Turkey. 320×170 cms.
A very expresive rug woven by Belouch nomads from Herat region of Afghanistan. The fangs, the pelt, the claws etc. are like a cubist painting, that contrast with the peacefull look of the camel and its baby who is looking for protection under her mother. The camel´s saddlebag reproduces the motives from the rug´s border. Woven by the Afghan Picasso!
