Description

This entrancing art-level town rug is noteworthy for the unabashed innovation of its design and its consummate craftsmanship. Alive with expression, its crisp drawing capturing every delightful nuance of line and shape. Its deep pomegranate shield medallion provides the entry point into the wonderland of dancing, multi-colored flowers and leaves, each reinvented numerous times around the field, beckoning the viewer to follow the progressions. The border and spandrels are further evidence of the great dexterity of its weaver, introducing a multiplicity of fanciful blossoms strikingly silhouetted against the midnight indigo ground.
