(High-Decorative) In this captivating treasure from the prized Lesghi substyle, three dramatic eight-pointed medallions, the traditional emblem of the Lesghi tribe, float on a field completely strewn with geometricized flowers of the field in the form of tiny 'Stars of Wisdom,' 'Diamonds of Wealth’ and dragons. The luminous cornflower blue window around the middle medallion is thoroughly novel for this type and adds to its charm. Meanwhile, the very graphic main border richly contrasts with the details in the field. Although every square inch seems covered in patterns, the unusually finely woven rug is utterly harmonious and balanced as a whole.
