TYPE: a single dragon tibetan khagangma

CIRCA: 1920’s

A single dragon Tibetan seating carpet, being unusual in that it shows the dragon in profile, as opposed to ‘side-on’ as is usually the case.  The whimsical looking five clawed (Imperial) red scaled dragon is portrayed frolicking in the clouds, and is surrounded by a main border consisting of stylised sky, clouds and mountains. The carpet has several old repairs, in the center of the top and bottom borders, and at the top of the dragons head. A mix of primarily aniline, and some natural, dyes.
