(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Fall/Winter New Arrivals Event“) This arresting antique Chi Chi demonstrates the technical virtuosity and exuberant artistic freedom of the Caucasian lowland weaving tradition. A mesmerizing arrangement of individually patterned diamonds, each with arrow-like pendants, is set with razor-sharp clarity in dynamic diagonal rows. A wealth of continually shifting hues, especially the subtle range of blues and the golden brown base of the main border, redoubles the forceful impact of this virtuoso area size. The lovingly executed design can be most deeply appreciated by clicking through to its massive image to view the evidence of the mind-boggling patience and attention invested in this immersive 160-year-old piece.
