(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Fall/Winter 2019 Print Catalog”) A stellar member of the high-mountain Kazaks, esteemed for their evocative, age-old symbols, this standout piece offers a compelling simplicity of design and rare green turquoise field. Known for their minimalist formats that set off powerful symbols most often surrounding a niched, medallion, this Caucasian sub-style has always attracted serious connoisseurs for their compelling imagery and dimensions that work easily on floor or wall. The main chalice and oak leaf border is decidedly naïve and freeform in contrast to the precision of the field, underlying the sense of humor woven into the textile, as if reminding the viewer that the profound and the playful are both needed in life.
