Zeikhur Pictorial Rug
A Zeikhur pictorial rug (northeastern Caucasus, 1884) on a blue/green ground with a central quartet of four-legged fox-like creatures, three lions across the top, and a border of flowers along the edge. This unique rug is notable because of the large proportion of the fox figures, which were adapted from Western print sources.
