Open Stage, library@esplanade

Caucasian rugs have been prized by collectors since their appearance on the western market in the 19th century. Several books have been devoted to the rugs from this ethnically diverse region. In this lecture, Imran ABID Mir of Lotto Carpets Gallery will focus exclusively on prayer rugs which, featuring special purpose weavings with important social and religious significance, were created by highly skilled weavers using the finest materials. Discover the history of the traditions, and feast your eyes on examples dating as far back as the 18th century. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the lecture.
