SHIRVAN, Southeast Caucasian
3' 8" x 4' 5"

(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“New Acquisition Sampling") This expertly woven Caucasian Shirvan is uniquely mesmerizing, elevated by unusual technical mastery into a luxuriant mosaic of pinpoint allover designs. The hand of an accomplished, inspired tribal weaver transforms the serrated allover field and intricate, unforgettable border suite into a sumptuous series of interrelated layers, each requiring pinpoint control. Color is used just as dexterously: abundant jade green, calm sapphire blue, saturated indigo and bright ivory interweave a constant interplay of light and dark, redoubling the rug’s vibrancy and magnetism. Entirely spontaneous tribal imagery—including distinctly dissimilar four-legged animals along the left edge only—provide the final level of vitality. Learn About This Rug Type
