(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 2, p. 26)Rugs with prominent central medallions, such as this strikingly angular Bijar masterwork with its rare, luxurious expanse of camelhair, can very effectively anchor the most voluminous interior spaces. Here, the understated inner luminosity of the spacious camelhair reserve is an animating force in and of itself, while also serving as the perfect foil for the iconic, innovative medallions that float upon its rhythmically striated surface. No two motifs are drawn exactly the same, from the four incredibly original trout motifs to the delicate pomegranate flowers in sheltered lattice compartments. Learn About This Rug Type
