Description Originating from Russia in 1910, this antique traditional Yamut wool rug has a thoughtful repetition of the Memling gul, a variant of the symbols named for historian Hans Memling characterized by diamond shapes and finely woven patterns. Hand knotted in high quality wool, the field design employs quarter diamond guls in a uniquely rich red, bright blue, and beige colourway combination throughout the five shifted rows of these symbols representing protection. Complemented by mirrored goz eye borders representing similar protections, as well as a series of geometric chests in the beige middle border representing wealth, it is unique to see these wrapping borders between particularly wide, geometrically stylized fringes normally seen in a finer, more tucked fashion on similar Yamut pieces; likely denoting this rug’s purpose for luxury despite its tribal overtones.
