Not only is this pictorial carpet quintessentially delightful, its design is without precedent for this weaving traditon, a prize for lovers of Heriz carpets. Continually varied crimson, carnelian, cobalt blue and aquamarine create an astounding impact as they infuse brilliantly stylized central trees under a sheltered mihrab arch. Animated parrots, lifelike geese, and birds of paradise replete with streaming tail feathers are rendered with the same intense animation and careful attention as the overscale scrolling fronds and flowers, creating a sense of dynamic movement that make this piece a perfect adornment for a special niche.
