Antique Tibetan Rug, Long Narrow Monastic Runner,possibly order made. Seams are finished, doesn't appear to be cut. Long and expansive field. Nice example of an archaic, simple mandala center. This center is quite unusual, geometrically it almost creates an endless knot look. The green on red is eye pleasing. Great piece to be used in tight spaces on the floor or wall. expensive

The Mandala symbolizes the entire universe in terms of planets and time cycles, as well as aspects of our body and mind, and even the practice. Deities and other images within the mandala represent for example the sense organs, the elements and mental aspects, all in a purified state.
