(Connoisseur-Caliber) Offering daring experimentation with powerful, iconic designs, this dynamic Kazak conveys a joyous expressiveness. The invigorating overscale main border of sunburst-like flowers frames the petite royal blue reserve. Playful, rustically drawn boteh (“Seeds of Life” motifs) dance in diagonal rows throughout the field and continue the spirited exploration of color and form. Finally, in the minor borders, the weaver teases the viewer’s eyes with a wholehearted shift from triangular kite motifs to S-shaped dragon forms, symbolizing the sun’s life-giving quality.
