This represent a well known type of shirwan , prayer rug is attributed to Marasali , a village some fifty kilometers south of shemakha.
Shirvan produced many highly decorative antique rugs that have a formality and stylistic complexity that is found in few rugs from the Caucasus.

A wide variety of dates is found on published examples, ranging from the last decade of the 18th century to the second decade of the 20th cenury.
The depth of colors, the complexity of the composition and the phenomenal patterns featured in antique Shirvan rugs set them apart from those produced in other regions of the Caucasus.
