CAUCASE (Zeikhour) – 96
Caucase lies at the very heart of the rug-weaving world. The entire evolution of tribal rug weaving can be seen in Caucasian antique carpets. The dragon motif, boteh, flowerhead, arabesque, palmette, birds, animals, cloudband and crab designs are all present. Sometimes many of these are found in a single antique rug!
