Antique Chinese Pao Tao Peking rug, hand-woven in dark blue, grey, pink, red, green, and brown colors, with five medallions depicting auspicious scholar objects surrounding a large central image of a deer standing below a perching crane. This is a popular Buddhist image called the Six Harmonies because the word "deer" is a homophone for the number "six" in Chinese and represents earth below heaven. 19th century Size: 33" x 52 "
