("New Arrivals Gallery") Deceptive in its seeming simplicity, this extraordinarily finely crafted Caucasian Shirvan rug brings together a very seldom-seen allover sprig and flower pattern. The ivory ground abounds with a forest of blossoms that burst forth like a springtime meadow after the rains. Each is treated with nearly imperceptible individual nuances manifesting the joy of continual reinvention. The consistency of scale and highly disciplined arrangement reveals the experienced master at work. The viewer is treated to a sparkling palette of guava, malachite, periwinkle, rose quartz, and royal yellow in various chromatic intensities. An ultra stylized dragon cloudband border in rainbow hues provides an effective frame and dynamic counterpoint. The dramatic azure color shift in the minor crenelated bands is a life-giving artistic stroke of genius. Its heavy pile speaks of the great respect consistently given to this veritable treasure.
