DAGHESTAN RUNNER, Northeast Caucasian

("New Arrivals Gallery") This best-of-the-best runner was perhaps woven as a meal cloth for its nomadic owners to lay out on the ground for a special feast. It offers a luminous ivory field filled with a finely drawn organic latticework and abstract flower archetypes in unique naturally dyed hues that are elegant while retaining a free flowing tribal aesthetic. The astute viewer will be delighted to progressively discover its constantly changing parade of individually rendered irises, carnations, poppies, lilies, and roses over time. Glowing natural hues including mauve, azure, robin's egg blue, aquamarine, and lilac, redouble the joyfully emotive artistry of this rhythmic hand-knotted folk art piece. This venerable rug has been lovingly preserved over its 175 years through professional securing and minor spots of expertly executed restoration. Destined to be a cherished collector's item, it would imbue a hall or narrow space with an unforgettable joy.
