SERABAND RUNNER, Central Persian

("New Arrivals Gallery") Nuanced formality that is highly atypical for a Persian runner as nomads and their settled relatives weaved the vast majority. This intricate, small-scale patterning gives this unique piece a thoroughly magnetic presence. It is extremely finely crafted and features fluid waves of pattern incorporated within its "window within a window" medallion, subtly emphasizing the vertical axis while introducing an exquisitely detailed internal world. Seraband's signature painstaking attention to minuscule detail continues at both ends but becomes considerably more spacious in sheltered niches at left and right, where naive blossoms provide a welcome, deeply personal surprise. Majestic, clearly drawn repeating borders and effective use of subtle terracotta to carnelian abrash further distinguish this exceptionally versatile corridor rug.
