Hi Filiberto,
The fragment which introduces this thread is not only close to the «pre-islamic» Kircheim rug, it also features a highly interesting border motif with what looks like a mythical animal too.
Since my March quota for hare-brained theories is not yet reached, I move that it has a striking analogy with a border motif found in several antique (18th-19th century) anatolian Kurdish rugs. Like the three below:

B Balpinar & U. Hirsch, Teppiche aus dem Vakiflar Museum, Istanbul., plate 83

E. Concaro & A. Levi, Sovereighn carpets, Unknown masterpieces from european collections.Plate 48

Is my quota exhausted now?
