With a rugged construction of soft thick pile and coarse dark weft, this uncommon Zakatala prayer rug displays the classic rustic construction and graphic boldness that make these North Caucasian pieces so popular. Balanced against the all-encompassing ivory field are geometric elements scaled to about three unique sizes. A central column is made up of the floating mihrab niche and two large diamonds each etched out to form latch-hook diamonds from the negative space of the field. Rather than a traditional border system, a simple dark crenelated frame is used, adding to an almost celestial sense of expansion achieved by the spacing of ornament. This piece is dated 1286 corresponding to the Western date 1869.
