Rug formed by the assemblage of three sheets. The so-called plain, the central part of decoration, is crafted on a background of dark blue warp, decorated with diagonal rows of mice in alternating color. The plain is framed by thin edging with triangular patterns, or thorns (skinou). It is followed by the inward main edging of repeating two-headed eagles. The plain is outlined by a second, thinner, inward zigzag edging. The all-around outward edging consists of alternating patterns of a boy and a hand with apples. The rug’s outer section has zigzag edging.
