(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“NEW ACQUISITION") Fascinating spontaneity and a wondrous color palette distinguish this quite spirited Marasali rug whose traditional design holds repetitive serrated edged botehs. Here, each of the radiating botehs that fill the field, reveal seemingly endless tonal combinations. How is it possible to display this much variety without the result seeming inharmonious? This master Caucasian weaver employed different subtle “slights of hand.” In the field. See how amidst its myriad of colors, red and the golden yellow hues appear in every boteh. The extremely tight knotting and subtle handle of the rug shows that this highly talented artist was also an extremely dexterous weaver. Learn About This Rug Type
