LIONS 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.).
Drawing inspiration from astrology and celestial maps from the 15th century. Two lions, two moons and constellations become one with each another. The lions themselves are sitting on a magic carpet calmly staring at you – as if they have appeared to you in a dream, while constellations are acting as invisible guides for your journey, a journey into the night - a place of stillness and infinite wisdom.
