Kukes Kilim

Kukes Province

80 years

This is a kilim type of cotton and wool unique to the Kukes region which always occurs in three panels woven on a horizontal loom. This elongated kilim is designed to be viewed from one end which suggests it may have been used in the entry way of a hall or large room, perhaps even hung from a balcony. The imagery of a rich, verdant flower garden with birds occurs throughout. The central black panel represents an inner garden with three large roses, three smaller ones, and two well-defined doves. A white fence punctuated with 21 stemmed flowers surrounds the rose garden. On each side of the rose garden are a total of 12 pigeons followed by 8 large, tall flowering plants or trees. Immediately following are another variety of smaller flowers numbering ten and then ten bee-like forms. A table of two large orange flowers appears on each end in white, each accented with four triple-leaflets with fine white veining. On either side of the tables are two examples of each of the following: pansies, doves, and stemmed flowers. The central garden is enclosed with a white border or fence on which is a continuous vine of finely detailed multi-colored flowers. Orange bands with a total of 15 pansies are found on the short ends. A black border surrounds the whole and this contains a continuous vine with hundreds of flowers. The long edges have a multi-colored strip of squares for the entire length, with the short ends displaying a thin red border with white cotton fringe.
