|Dear Daniel, Thank you for this salon. The Moghan: Is it pictured pile
up, or down? I'm asking this, for I'm having problems with the sloping
inner borders in the upper part of the field. If I'm correct some
triangles are missing in the corners. Why? If a rug is under debate, it's
essential to know the way it has been seen by the one who knotted the rug.
I've seen Caucasian prayer rugs with the pile down, but the niche-design
turned 180 degrees. So, at what side did the Moghan-artist start? I find
it a very beautiful specimen and it's roots could well be Azerbeidian, but
I do not rule out Turkey. I've seen many Turkish/Caucasian rugs made by
refugees after 1918 as it got hot in Russia. The lacking off floral,
human, Christian, and perspective design gives the rug a very
Islam-doctrine enviorment and less Christian. So, ethnics is Caucasian.
Hellinistic? Yes. Coptic? Yes. Chinees? Yes. Aboriginal? 80% no. African?
50% no. Cher Daniel, mon Anglais est mauvais comme mon Francais, c'est
pourquoi j'expresse mon grande admiration de votre travaille. Merci,
