Antique Tibetan Rug with Tiger Design

About

Antique tiger design rug, Tibet, 1920 -- A deep, crimson sky sets the ideal background for the white, snow-capped mountains before it in this Tibetan piece. Rich, earthy stone hues define the antique rug, from the mountainous backdrop to the rocky floor at the foreground. A leaping tiger creates flow and action, its sandy body twisting as it lands, the red of its mouth revealed in a characteristic roar. A stooping cherry blossom tree adds serenity to the piece, its milky white bark and perennials outlined by a Stygian black. A rich, dark border surrounds the scene, and within its depths are blushing pink cherry blossoms, connected by tendrils of leafy vines.
