: Dear Friends,
: Images that may represent human figures or may just look that way accidentally are commonplace on rugs. I thought you might enjoy this example. It's a Kazak offered at Sotheby's a few years ago (Lot 82, December 1995). I thought it was kind of attractive, and brought my wife to where it was hanging. She didn't like it. "Why?", I asked. "I don't like looking at rugs that look back at me", she answered.
: 'Nuff said.

This may be a unique rug! I have never seen a pidgeon-toed figure on any rug - or any art form. In a more serious vein - this is an example of a stick-figure in a 20th c. rug. I believe that my comment to Pat Weiler's Luri rug applies. Regards, Marvin
