The overall visual impression is of strength mingled with minimality.The mihrab outline re-enters the niche at the lower end of the ivory field.The rare main border sports small triangles and kilim-like elements.There are broad kilim ends with partial loss of the bottom finish.Many Anatolian rugs of this region use the cicim technique to embellish their kilim ends and here one endweave has a brocaded,blue "S".The colors are beautiful and the condition is good.
