DEER AT NIGHT
Handmade rectangular rug
THE NIGHT OF A HUNTER by Rooms Studio for cc-tapis
A collection of rugs which have been hand-knotted in Nepal by Tibetan Artisans.
Rugs are deeply rooted in Georgian culture and have been an inseparable part of everyday life for centuries.
This is the story about the old Georgian rugs that were hand-made by the local women in the villages high up into the Caucasus Mountains, where you can touch the starry sky and where you can become one with the universe, and the universe becomes one with you.
It is a story of a primitive expression for the feelings invoked by the wilderness, in it’s beauty and the mystery of it’s invisible energy illustrated in the simple lines, words and numbers in the rugs.
Reinterpreting authentic Georgian Rug motifs, Rooms Studio fuse design and history into this small-curated selection of rugs.
"A rug – in itself is a magical object, but for us it is also a symbol of cultural heritage and a chance to explore both paths." - Rooms Studio.
Quality: A (125.000 knots/sqm approx.).
Inspired by starry skies and the infinite nature of space, we continue our theme of traveling in time by going back to our roots by using authentic rug motifs from our past and into the future by using the most recognizable Sci-fI object: the UFO. This playfulness adds absurdity to the artwork and loses its sense of time. The moonlight shines peacefully onto the deer and the constellations create another level of mystery and a sense of the journey - both internal and literal.
