Dollhouse Area Rug BALIKESIR - Petit Point Pattern

This week new design is a Dollhouse Miniature Petit Point pattern for an are rug BALIKESIR. This is a reproduction of an antique rug, 19th century., modified.

The rug displays a different stylization of the fight between the dragon and the phoenix. This is a symbolic representation of spring when the earth meets heaven and the God unite with mother goddess to produce fertile spring rains.

The pattern was recreated and modified from a survived piece of an actual rug, depicted on this image:

194 x 361 stitches, 8 colors

22 canvas - 8.82" x 16.41" (22,40 x 41,68 cm)

40 count silk gauze - 4.85" x 9.03" (12,32 x22,92 cm)

The pattern is charted for stitching with DMC. However, I would advise to stitch with Gloriana silk, or another over dyed silk of your choice to give a rug that antique worn look.

Another beautiful design - and it's very interesting to learn that these are not only good looking but also have a tale to tell.
