("New Arrivals Gallery") This uniquely hued, diminutive, over one-and-one-half-centuries-old Ferahan Sarouk rug embodies a fascination with natural shifts of light. These are expertly captured through constant, subtle abrash (intentional color striation). A novel palette of warm browns and beguiling blush hues will endear this superbly crafted piece to knowledgable enthusiasts. The expressive, especially nuanced color shifts that permeate its visage also serve as a sophisticated visual device to invisibly harmonize compositional zones, drawing together medallion, borders and corner pieces with seemingly effortless cohesion. The rug's 3-1/2 by 4-1/2 size, highly unusual among 19th-century Ferahan Sarouks, and its glowingly aged patina are further strong suits.
