A pair of giant tigers pose against an orange sky with small stars, doves, and a crescent moon overhead. An amazing Kazakh or Uzbek folk kelim. These kelims are typically geometric and pictorial pieces are much less common.

Excellent condition with a couple of tiny areas of wear. Very clean. This tiger kilim was suspended on a wall using sewn cloth loops, and appears to have never been used on the floor. Kelims and sumaks were traditionally displayed in yurts and homes in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan for decoration– and often as wall tapestries. 1970s-80s.

This could go on the floor but would be stunning as a wall tapestry. Exact size is 13 ft. 10 in. by 7 feet! It would be fantastic in a large bedroom, den or playroom — or even a more public setting such as a school or library.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

William Blake
