(“SPRING 2018 PRINT CATALOG", p. 22)
Awash in a gorgeous display of curvilinear vine work and floral motifs, this elite Motasham Kashan vase rug showcases an intricate weave through its natural realism. Extending outward from the center of the rug, the field reveals a magnificent level of axial symmetry, with each ornament perfectly mirrored on either side. The allure of Motashams is that their symmetrical perfection is submerged beneath the expressiveness of each character in the portrait. High-collectible examples, such as this, achieve this aliveness through crystal clear drawing of the specifics of each form. Note the posture of the birds that look as if they have been photographed in mid movement. Learn About This Rug Type
