Of course, you are right
that it will be nigh impossible to truly know the "correct" drawing for
that motif. However, I have seen a number of motifs on Yomud weavings that
do seem derivative and simplified compared to this.
Here is an
example from Jourdan (plate 142), which bears some resemblance but seems
to be a simplified rendition. Or, perhaps, these don't have any design
Actually, I also do like the choices made for the border
system, including the use of a reddish ground for the soldat
("tuning fork") border. I too have looked for other similar examples, and
find that the norm seems to be a white ground for it.
As to your
offer to mind it for some time, I will note that my wife finds it quite
"masculine", which means that it will take some convincing to find
prominence in our home. So stay tuned...
