PICKUP ONLY,,,There are numerous photos of the motifs. SIZE is 11 feet wide x 15 feet long. NOTE==I am no expert, but that said, what i have learned to focus on, is the consistency of the LIGHT BLUE COLOR from motif to motif. TO ME, IF THE LIGHT BLUE IS THE SAME THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE RUG THEN ENOUGH DYE WAS MIXED TO LAST FROM THE INCEPTION TO THE COMPLETION. [ does that make sense to you??? ] PLUS, I know for a fact that light colors degrade faster due to UV RAYS,,,,and the light blue is holding up nicely for a 100 year old rug....WILL TRADE FOR::SOLID GOLD WIND UP [OLD SCHOOL] mens wrist watch like LeCoultre,,Patek Phillipe,,Vacheron,,,OR OTHER HIGH END WIND UPS ,,,,SKID STEER like babcat,,,,Home defense,,,OR A SUV like Explorer,,Expedition,,,,A TRAILER for hauling CARS ,,,,A pickup, CALL ME!!!I'm ezy to talk to and you never know what I might trade for!!

--NOTE---Iv'e been told it could have taken over a year to make this hand knotted rug,mostly due to the fact that it has more complicated motifs than others. lenny @ show contact info
THIS RUG HAS TO BE ONE OF THE BUSIEST PIECES IV'E EVER SEEN,,THAT SAID,,IT SEEMED TO BLEND IN PERFECTLY INTO MY DAUGHTER'S A FRAME LIVING ROOM [ just a tad to long ] Iv'e actually spent hours at a time exploring the motifs, then comparing them with motifs from different middle eastern countries, to identify the color and type of dyes used and the meaning of the images.. Seems to me that would be a WONDERFUL WAY TO TEACH A CHILD ABOUT THE CULTURE OF THE MIDDLE EAST rather than all the war and devastation that seems to be never ending there. just saying.
