Mount Fuji Afghan Rug

Here’s a puzzler:
Mushwani, 5’1″ x 7’5″, dated 1994. No coherant translation of Farsi text, yet. The wool is super fine, very well knotted. The use of different checkerboard techniques is noteworthy, particularly how the checkerboard coloration is used to create convincing pictorial depth. $1400

About Kevin

Kevin Sudeith is an artist and the creator and curator of the war rug collection seen on Beginning as (and remaining) a collector, he began selling war rugs to learn as much as possible about the rugs. Later he sold what he calls "regular rugs" to better study rugs and their historical origins. Sudeith learned how war rugs related to traditional Afghan tribal and workshop rugs as well as the broader Turkmen and Persian rug traditions.
