3.09 x 3.11 Mid nineteenth century Antique Ningshia Rug, China - A classic Chinese dragon hovers assertively, full frontal, surrounded by a scatter of pictorial elements, the so-called "hundred and one gifts." Beneath him is a pagoda flanked by two more dragons, all standing on a stylized mountain, the lower portions of which serve as a sort of baseline frame. The other three edges are framed by Chinese vinescroll. Despite the complexity of the entire design, the use of the same cool golden ground as the field unifies the whole composition and provides a light, open or see-through quality.
