(High-Collectible) Among its counterparts, this high collectible Caucasian Karachov Kazak is an attractive and rare small size example of this powerful regional design. The impact of its virtuoso, whimsical drawing conveys an explicit cheerfulness to the collection of enigmatic tribal motifs unlike anything we have seen. Collectors familiar with Caucasian rugs will appreciate the spontaneous, freehand sprinkling of countless tiny diamonds and the incredibly spacious medallion and border that produce a delightful contrast, a nimble shifting between density and diffusion. This ability to create a seemingly casual folk art expression happens at the hand of a master after decades of practice. Learn About This Rug Type
