("New Arrivals Gallery") Kurdish rugs are relished by connoisseurs of folk art and are known for their great variety of formats. This iconic piece exemplifies an unusually meticulous design aesthetic and the deeply appealing earth-tone palette that accounts for their enduring appeal. A refreshing open composition showcases its striking navy blue medallion that leaps off the subtly shaded mocha-toned camelhair ground and is filled with elemental floating pomegranate-inspired rosettes in this delightful 3-1/2 x 5 piece. Its medallion is oriented off-center, shifting the entire field composition upward, engendering a directional sense of movement. The crisply defined, artfully rendered cornerpieces are in ivory and vermilion, also populated by elemental rosettes. Its warm earth tone palette and unfussy, carefully balanced motifs combine to bring about a form of geometric magic that imbues this piece with an almost magnetic appeal. A compelling border frame holds a wide main band as its central focus keeping with the spacious theme, surrounded by matching "Fence of Security" reciprocal crenellations in the minor borders. Its condition is extremely good for its nearly century and a half of age with the super-durable foundation for which Bijars are well-known.
