Hand-Knotted Wool Pair of Ningxia Dragon Temple Pillar Rugs/Carpets, Chinoiserie

US$6,590per set

About

The fine pair of pillar carpets is hand-knotted and woven in the Ningxia style. The autonomous Province of Ningxia shares borders with Mongolia and has a mainly Muslim population thus giving it a rich carpet tradition and access to superb wool. This wool has been used in these pillar carpets which were often made for use in Mongolian lamaist temples as adornments and comforters for the pillars in the temple. They would wrap around and join up. The dyes are vegetable-based dyes. Each carpet shows the flying dragon chasing a flaming ball, and surrounded by ruyi clouds and Buddhist symbols, with a hanging awning at the top and stylized mountains and waves at the bottom. The pair is in mirror image.
