Very attractive Tibetan seating carpet with seven small mandala-like ‘medallions’ each enclosing an auspicious swastika or sauswastika (i.e. a reverse swastika), with a T shaped meander main border. Two shades of natural blue, one very dark – both coming from the use of indigo – make up the colouring of the carpet, with a subtle but noticeable abrash throughout. Very tightly woven with a wool warp and wool weft, made circa 1920. In excellent condition.
