Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This inventive antique Caucasian Shirvan offers a sophisticated design, successfully incorporating age-old tribal motifs with an effortless grace. A plethora of dazzling polychrome striped botehs or ’Seeds of Life’ inhabit the deep midnight indigo reserve in a most pleasing juxtaposition of color. The ordered asymmetry of the allover shifts somewhat dramatically from one end to the other, yet loses none of the harmony of the general motif. Tiny seed and blossom motifs await discovery tucked with the field and minor borders, illustrating the playfulness and skillful whimsy of the artist-weavers that lends a wonderfully folkloric aspect to the piece.
