(High-Decorative) A dazzling array of color and archetypal symbols creates a palpable sense of joyfulness and celebration in this finely crafted antique Caucasian Shirvan rug. From the regional tradition that uses mesmerizing hexagons in a column format, it is a wonderfully preserved, precious piece of tribal art. Throughout, the designs naturally dyed colors are beautifully saturated and incredibly diverse, presenting a blue range of azure, cobalt, and sapphire tones as well as uncommon flashes of saffron, ochre, and ruby. In a creative flourish, a chain of rarely used pinwheel motifs is employed by the weaver to surround three sides of the field, but not the uppermost edge.
