(Connoisseur-Caliber) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 2, p. 11)Rhythmic, generous spacing of arboreal motifs, a well-balanced color palette, and a ground of the finest undyed camel hair are brilliantly combined in this positively alluring area-size Bijar rug. The weeping willow motifs are each drawn with great spontaneity and variation, with meandering lines that clearly reveal the hand of joyful folk art weavers. Flamelike cypresses showcasing delightful tones of saffron, jade green and blood orange sensitively complete this traditional Tree of Life formatting. The natural luminosity of pure camelhair adds greatly to this rug's inimitable presence. Learn About This Rug Type
