Chi-Chi rugs are generally the finest of Caucasian rugs when it comes to structure and artistry. They usually depict an all over format of lozenge shaped motifs. This example stands out for two main aspects: the rare and much desired prayer niche at top; and the remarkable humanoid motif just within it, a very attractive and puzzling feature.
