FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
8' 7" x 11' 11"
262cm x 363cm
("New Arrivals Gallery")Consistent with antique Ferahan rugs of this earlier era, this extremely finely crafted, utterly dramatic Persian town rug boasts a relaxed spaciousness of design in its copper-toned field that is juxtaposed to the exquisite intricacy of its overscale center medallion, corner spandrels and borders. The majestic center medallion extends to all four sides of the field and its pinpoint motifs integrate into the well-choreographed design. Symmetrical design elements are sporadically interspersed with asymmetrical flourishes to ensure great visual interest as one grows evermore familiar with this art piece. This and its continual shifts of exotic, time-softened colors are particularly beguiling attributes. A deep patina is yet a further allure.
