Vintage Moroccan Beni Ouarain Carpet BO61
This vintage Beni Ouarain has an unusual interpretation of a traditional lozenge motif, with a network constructed of irregular lines and several breaks. The field is filled with typical female diamond motifs combined with male forms (cross, tent and stick). Woven in a unique combination of natural undyed wool including camel, dark brown and grey along with ivory and black. Often Berber carpets exhibit a correlation to much older forms of expression found in cave paintings and ancient rock carvings. This carpet is one of these examples. 100% wool.
