2013 BEST-OF-THE-BEST: This early antique Bakshaish rug is quite unlike any other piece of its type we have seen to date in its mastery of abrash and the blending of archetypal and naturalistic imagery. Its "Bakshaish Blue" field is incredibly evocative, with a tremendous variety of hues that gives the sense of looking through the water in a deep, crystal-clear pool. Its secondary palette of earthy beige, walnut and auburn glows against this extraordinary backdrop. The dragon vinery design of its field is a highly original feature that is extremely spacious and continually changing in its exact design, size and placement. This carpet's hidden artistic balance creates an atmosphere of great serenity and boundless fascination. This antique Persian carpet vividly evokes the Near Eastern philosophy that amidst the endless diversity of forms on the earth, there is the backdrop of unity and harmony.
