With quite an attention placed on the smallest of detail, this antique rug boasts different colors of blue and soft white that were used to create depth with careful shading within different graphic elements of the design. Cloud bands wrap the moon in a swirling mist above the landscape where more variations in blue color and texture add to the depth to this beautiful scenic pictorial rug.
