("New Arrivals Gallery") The niche at the top of this rug adheres to the Akstafa patterning for this design, housing a golden rectangle evoking stability and a proudly displayed ivory comb, the beloved indispensable tool of the weaver. Adjoining on either side are two compartmented, staff like 'Trees of Life' with chevron limbs, thriving amidst scattered florets. In this compelling, rarely found prayer rug format, a latticework encases numerous hooked diamond motifs, said to symbolize the energy of the celestial dragon archetype. A unique field feature, the pair of adorned hexagons slightly offsets the order of the design with an enigmatic simplicity. Infectious at every lucky encountering, a rainbow spectrum of time-mellowed hues endow this vibrant piece with a cheerful exuberance and is on full parade in the 'cubist' tulip chain border. The glistening patina of this piece's medium pile augments its enduring tribal expression.
