This is a visually dynamic, stunningly hued composition that brings the drama of the traditional Bakshaish format of a center medallion on an open field to new artistic heights. It is a great technical achievement as well, the unusually fine knotting achieving a highly sculpted drawing of its motifs. This 150-year-old carpet is captivating in its powerful spaciousness of design and its riveting archetypal artistry. Its asymmetrical, elongated concentric medallions float on planes of color, while the calligraphy highlighted in its broad inner border is rendered with exacting detail and a lyrical use of line. This magnificent example is persevered in very good condition.
