Quintessentially Caucasian, this Gendje runner offers a vivid expression of the nomadic weaver's unabashed exuberant spirit and artistic innovation. Its abundance of delightful, expertly rendered archetypal motifs and vivid coloration is sure to illuminate any setting. A series of Wheels of Life extends along the ideally proportioned field, unexpectedly becoming Knots of Eternity, a design inspired through the silk trade. An interlocking border pattern sparkles against the ivory ground. A highly stylized floral meander hides a smattering of tiny diamonds and two prehistoric-looking bird forms in the lower corner. The euphoric color palette of luminous cobalt, saturated madder, brilliant saffron, and nephrite green reflects an irrepressible vitality in the minds of the artist-weavers, a festive antidote to an often challenging way of life. Seldom found in such a narrow width, this glorious mountain runner retains heavy pile.
