(High-Collectible) ("Best-of-the-Best Sold in 2018") This joyful, unprecedented Bakshaish is a magnificent display of the styles’s unique use of spontaneity and ability to renew the regional pattern language. Within the reserve, a refreshing variation of the classical “Garden of Paradise” all-over design, with larger, more pronounced conifers and weeping willows flanks a single “Tree of Life” that extends the full length of the field. The rug’s use of color is rich and festive, serving to advance the composition’s uplifting central theme of the great abundance of the earth.Its border, based in a spectacular deep “Bakshaish Blue” with notable abrash, is atypically wide. This allows for a more overscale rendition of an elementally drawn, wonderfully irregular oak blossom and serrated leaf repeat that continues this rug's unparallelled artistry expression to its edges.
