Ghiordes prayer rug

ZKW-dep.FTS/195
In the main field an olive green prayer niche with a triangular stepped top, flanked by a white and amaranthine zigzag band. On the edge of the niche a row of tiny flowers on slanting stalks, in the centre a flower composition surmounted by a carnation in a small vase. Above the mihrab here are rectangular motifs – geometric flowers with serrated petals on a turquoise background. In the end sections of the field transverse navy blue-and-green stripes: the lower one with motifs analogous to those above the niche, the upper one with the motif of a cloud with inscribed rosettes. Border a1-X-a2. The central part made up of five stripes, alternately white and amaranthine with tiny flowers. The side bands feature a row of squares with inscribed motif of a lily flanked by carnations. Colours: olive green, white, amaranthine, yellow, light turquoise, navy blue-and-green, brownish red, brownish black.
