AH 1332 (1914 AD) dated Kuba "Zejwa" rug, Devechi District, Southern Lowland Kuba Region, North East Azerbaijan, 173 X 120 cm
The three concentric
medallions on the midnight-blue central field closely resemble the
medallions of carpet no 22.
Certainly, there are some small differences in their elements, the main one
being the ornamental design of the central field. In this case, three whole
medallions appear in the centre and eight half-medallions are arranged in
staggered rows along the sides. Representations of birds appear like in the
Pirabadil from the province of Kuba. The lateral arrow-like insertions on
each side, with four C motifs as if on a pole, are also interesting.
