Prizren carpet

Prizren

1971

This is a piled carpet from the Prizren region made in two panels by a bride for her new husband's family. This carpet would have served as special guest seating, sleeping mat, and as a prayer carpet. The initial border is a thin, straw colored band encasing the whole. A multi-colored banded strip follows on the long sides. Three of the four sides have a yellow band of 46 8-pointed stars, with white protusions bordered in light blue attempting to separate each star into its on small field. The three sides then have a zig zag pattern outlined in white and dark burgundy lines, followed by a green band on the long sides hosting a pile of small flowers. One short end features a two multi-colored bands encasing a zig-zag pattern. Now, resuming a four-sided border, the viewer comes to a border of multi-colored blocks, separated from each other by multi-colored bands, with each block featuring a multi-colored 8=pointed star. A multi-colored zig zag follows on all four sides, with a tighter zig-zag found on the short ends, separated from the rest of the carpet by yet another multi-colored band. The central field has corner patches in rich green, eachdecorated with a single white and orange flower. A diamond-like shape is created by using five zig-zag lines separating the corners from the center. The central orange diamond-like graden of flowers contains the date 1971 and Xama, a woman's name, likely the maker, with a single 8-pointed star resting on a green block. A mutlicolored fringe is attached separately to all four sides.
