In this masterful early Agra carpet, an exotic variation on the traditional Herati design creates a dazzling texture that expertly contrasts pinpoint areas of light and dark. Its popular and especially versatile soft earth tone color palette of sand, soft walnut and raw sienna would be as exquisite in a contemporary setting as it would be in a traditional home. Against this warm backdrop, a subdued, tranquil light-hued medallion provides an interesting pause in the rhythm of the allover design. Subtle variations in the main border are an intentional artistic element that add welcome depth and activity to this adventurous yet understated formal design.
