A soft, delicate pink suffuses across this elegant silk dhurrie.
Stylised peacocks, a favourite design motif in the large silk palace dhurries of the 1800’s, mirror each other around the centre of the rug.
Peacocks would be used to represent beauty, grace and pride; these ones are bound by a narrow but formal and strong border that mirrors the colours of the field. The heavy marks in the border provide a contrast to the playful strokes featured in the central design.
This rug was designed about mid-way through the collection and is one of the more relaxed and informal of the designs.
