MALAYER CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
10' 9" x 13' 8"
(Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 2, p. 22)
This supremely decorative large room size Malayer carpet astonishes with its striking camelhair field, its rare border design, and skillfully nuanced drawing of the medallions. Each part of every field device receives individual creative attention. The mind-bogglingly precise and rhythmically intricate pattern in the background is equally entrancing. Woven in aubergine, cadet blue, peach and sage green, cypress motifs populate the completely novel main frame along with teeming boteh ("seed of life" forms) and other whimsical elements. In one brilliant and virtuoso touch, a quiet extra outlining of one diamond medallion skillfully insures this art carpet’s magical allure remains enlivening and fresh. Learn About This Rug Type
