Visual Description : Large rectangular Oriental rug featuring a dense, abstract, symmetrical pattern. The pattern consists primarily of various small repetitive abstract shapes arranged within rectangular borders or frames that decrease in size as they approach the centre. The very centre of the pattern consists of separate floral designs posed on white that are all identical to one another. There are a number of red and white and red and blue striped thin borders or frames in the pattern overall. The colours of the rug are dark blue, light blue, red, yellow, green, white, orange, black, and brown. The shorter edges of the rug have small white tassels.
