KARACHOV KAZAK, Southern Central Caucasian

(Connoisseur-Caliber) Most connoisseurs of Kazak crugs will have never seen a piece quite like this. At over 140 years of age, this high mountains tribal rug serves as a fascinating window into the personal, meaningful relationship Caucasian weavers had with the ancient symbols before commercial influence over several decades standardized designs. It is an early, profoundly elemental rendition of the Fachralo medallion design, enhanced by a luminous cobalt blue ground for a greatly intensified impact. Inventive, crystal-clear drawing adds elegantly simplified latchhook devices and artful checkered enclosures, while a masterfully executed border suite combines creative color shifts with this impressive geometric clarity.
