Hi Folks,

For everybody's edification, here is the Straka rug, which in my opinion has become the paradigm for the type.

This one and a number of the others closely resembling it are smallish as Caucasian prayer rugs go. The Straka is 2' 11" X 3' 9".

Anyone wishing to see several striking examples of the type can google 'Straka Marasali Prayer Rug' and bring up many illustrations on one page.

Chuck, very interesting pics of your rug. More later, as supper beckons. More, but little of much import. !
