(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This incredibly finely crafted 130-off-year-old Ferahan mat reveals the depths of the elite Ferahan style's great creative originality, where occasionally an Avante Guard showpiece such as this breaks the mold of earlier designs. Here, a veritable sea of stylized botehs and delightful bird motifs combine into a rhythmic allover pattern. The multi-niche spandrels that frame the field contain a menergerie of creative, continually changing motifs to be discovered. The well-dyed palette is restricted to indigo, khaki, and an arresting red-orange hue, focusing attention on its adventurous pattern. The tremendous crispness of drawing is vividly seen in the chiseled contours of its borders. Learn About This Rug Type
