(High-Decorative) In a seldom found and versatile larger size, this Bakhtiari carpet explores the full artistic potential offered by the cherished Garden Compartment allover design. Each of the squares is its own world, akin to a Persian miniature painting, with a tremendous variety of design and color combinations. Even this high-resolution image belies the richness of its color palette: close examination of each panel reveals a fantastic array of nuanced tones inherent in every individual square. Tree motifs play against saturated ruby red and striking cobalt blue to create a multicourse feast for the color enthusiast. The cabbage rose motifs in the luminous ivory main border are drawn from the local weaving city of Kirman, evidence of an interesting cross-pollination between Persian weaving styles.
