The wool in this fabulous little Gendje rug is soft, thick and lustrous - something to wrap yourself up in on a cold night in the south-west Caucasus Mountains! Diagonal bands of small 'dragon' symbols fill the field in natural colours of indigo-blue and golden yellow. Note the three stylised birds, knotted upsides down, in the upper right area of the field. A small, unusual size for this type of rug.
