    The field design of this carpet is quite rare. There is a number of surviving rugs of mostly smaller scale that have rosettes in different colours in diagonal rows. We also have the three-medallion group, associated by Bidder with Buddhist traditions, in which large medallions dominate the field. In this carpet the two traditions have been carefully combined. Even though the medallions are smaller than in rugs from the three-medallion group, they are nevertheless quite distinct and of a type appearing on two rugs attributed by Bidder to Aksu (Bidder, Teppiche aus Ost-Turkestan, 38a, 38b). In order to integrate the medallions into the all-over design, the weaver placed the three blue medallions in the rows of blue rosettes. To mask the larger size of the medallions, the weaver cleverly inserted vegetal forms, of a shape we know from other rugs from East Turkestan. Surprisingly, the leaves by the upper medallion join up to form something resembling a prayer arch.

    The warm red field is surrounded by a system of narrow borders in a classical East Turkestan manner, excepting the red diamonds on a yellow ground which are relatively rare. A charming variation appears on the left upper side where in the dark blue border the single flower design is replaced by three angled flowers, a motif often used in the borders of rugs from the western part of the Taklamakan desert.

    The earliest depiction of a Khotan carpet with this rare design probably appeared in Der Orientteppich in Geschichte, Kunstgewerbe und Handel, Meyer Müller, 1917. That particular rug, later published in Schürman, Central Asian Carpets, differs from the present example in that in the corners we see quarter medallions instead of a fretwork design. At both ends we find a vase from which a stem with leaves rises towards the centre medallion. This diverges from the standard East Turkestan medallion and is instead related to Gansu rugs with the same design. Hans König published related examples in HALI 138, pp.60/61. In these we find an explanation for the winged form on top of the stem: butterflies borrowed from the Chinese tradition. The same source of inspiration can be found in the larger of the two floral motifs covering the rest of the field. A lotus flower surrounded by leaves curves to one side. The second smaller motif is a pomegranate with leaves, more commonly seen with the all-over design of the same name in East Turkestan rugs. A wonderful ‘Yun cai tou’ border in tandem with a restrained swastika meander frame the field perfectly. Interestingly, we find the rare small diamond border strip in reverse colouration to lot 42.
