Design: Two vertical medallion systems each of three lapis blue and golden yelllow hexagonal lozenges with upper and lower red serrate-edged panels (gubpa-dome) flank a vertical axial arrangement of four red diamond medallions, all against a midnight blue field containing some ivory grape leaf motifs and stylised bird forms; a tan inner border of interlocking latch-hooked amulets and a striking ivory main border of polychrome interlock bird-like design are set between red and dark blue floral-repeat minor borders and golden inner medachyl stripe. Luminous dyes combine with in unusual asymmetry in the design execution to produce an attractively spontaneous visual impression in this finely-crafted example.
