BIJAR RUNNER, Northwest Persian
3' 1" x 14' 2"
94cm x 432cm
Late 19th Century
("New Arrivals Gallery") A calming soft parchment field, strikingly saturated borders and a majestic parade of internally striated pinpoint motifs invest this extremely durable 140-year-old Bijar runner carpet with a captivating aesthetic magnetism that is far from typical. The unusually high visual interest is greatly enhanced by its crisply drawn allover pattern of painstaking boteh ("seed of life") forms, each containing deft inner courses of nuanced color. This results in an abrash-like effect that draws the eye along its full 14 ft length. Juxtaposed against this understated zone, bold crimson, abundant Prussian blue and delicate rose, gold and periwinkle tones imbue grand flower and vinery bands with tremendous potency.
