Tibetan Dragon Cushion Rug

We found this fabulous rug in an old Tibetan home while trekking deep in the Himalaya, in the restricted Mustang area. It was being used as a cushion cover and stood out as soon as we saw it. It is not as old as our other carpets, but the design and colors are lovely.  

The carpet depicts a four-armed dragon facing forward in a celestial field of clouds. The uses are many as you could hang it on the wall, find a special place on the floor, or return it to use as a cushion cover.
