77625 Antique Chinese Art Deco Pictorial Rug with Qing Dynasty Style 09'01 x 11'04. This hand knotted wool antique Chinese Art Deco rug features a color-blocked field and border scheme festooned with glorious sprays of flowers and a striking landscape scene overlaid upon an abrashed golden hued field. On the top left side of the composition, a plum tree is depicted in peak bloom with an abundance of small multi-colored blossoms elegantly dotting its gnarled branches. Plum blossoms are amongst the most treasured of Chinese symbols; they are seen to represent fortitude and resilience, since the long-lived tree blooms brightly during the cold of winter. On the right side is a pagoda nestles among trees and a cliff while a group of birds flutter about representing fleeting moments. The interplay between the piece’s decorative elements gives the composition a great deal of movement and visual interest. These tranquil scenes reflect the Chinese belief that harmony with nature leads to spiritual satisfaction.
