Notes: A true gem of a weaving, with that perfect balance of colour and design that makes me love rugs so much. A central roundel composed of affronting (or kissing?) dragons, surrounded by four delicate lotus flowers with outstretching leafy stems. The silk texture gives a silvery sparkle to the refined polychromy. What more is there to desire?
