30661 New Contemporary Chinese Art Deco Dragon Rug 09'10 x 12'11. This hand-knotted wool Chinese Art Deco style rug features a large dragon surrounded by Ruyi clouds. Seen as possessing unrivaled power, strength, and nobility, the dragon, known in Mandarin Chinese as “Kuilong,” is amongst the most beloved symbols in Chinese culture. The mythical beast was once thought to have the power to control the elements and climactic changes such as floods, drought, rain, thunder and lightning. Dragons are often depicted as chasing after luminous flaming pearls, which are thought to represent wisdom and enlightenment. Aside from the rich cultural symbolism attached to each image, the geometric pattern, creatures and objects are all beautifully rendered in a marvelous color palette. The expert use of shading gives a great deal of dimension and a naturalistic appearance to the fantastic motifs, creating a truly outstanding design with undeniable beauty.
