Ersari Fragment, Central Asia, 19th century, 8.5” x 8.75”

Believed to be a fragment from the border of what was once a very grand carpet attributable to the middle Amu Darya region of Central Asia, the imagery is irresistible and appears to depict a bird, with a curvilinear beak and head.

Most would say it is a boteh, but the appearance of botehs in the art of Central Asia is not without meaning, one of which may be as representative of birds. Birds have always been a subject seen in rugs and textiles from Central Asia.

The condition of this fragment is quite good, with virtually full pile. The colors are all derived from natural dyes. $375
