Handloomed checkerboard rug, Tibet, early 20th C., 2' 9" x 6' 2" (84 x 188 cm) Weight 10lbs. Tibetan wool and vegetable dye. A simple and sophisticated checkerboard rug, with its natural geometric irregularities and beautiful gradations in color due to the nature of hand-dyed wool is in my opinion, one of the most beautiful objects. It's beautiful at a glance, and becomes more sublime the more you look at it.
