(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 2, p. 18)Exemplifying the elemental sharply rendered imagery and bold but nuanced coloration that are the foundations for the very best of many Caucasian weaving traditions, this superb 140-year-old Kazak demonstrates its artistic fluency by combining Kazak construction with prized "Lesghi Star" motifs. Exceptionally evocative abrash striation is of special potency in the reserve, ascending through a stunning variety of nuanced aquamarine, sapphire and even cobalt blue hues. In addition to the intensely individual rendering of each Star, archetypal bird forms are uniquely deconstructed, adding yet another layer of tribal symbology. Learn About This Rug Type
