Antique Kuba rug, late 19th century, Southern Hillside Kuba Region, Devechi (Divichi)-Shabran District, North East Azerbaijan
The design of this
rug is a descendent of a very old one composed of repeated palmettes flanked
by curved leaves. It centers on three different connected and ascending
palmette (or shield) forms on the vertical axis of the field, each flanked
by “curled-leaf” motifs.
