But there's more to discover. Surrounding the central tale are intricate, double-layered "running water" patterns, each with its own distinctive story. These complex patterns, akin to ripples on a tranquil pond, imbue the rug with a sense of movement and depth, transforming every step into a journey through time and artistry.
The rug's story extends to its very edges, where a stunning frame adorned with colorful "love and unison, Ying-Yang" motifs on a deep rustic brown canvas encapsulates the rug's essence. These patterns glisten like celestial gems, framing the masterpiece and introducing an element of surprise and contrast.
