(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This consummate tribal rug's uncanny level of precision, planning, artistic ambition and clarity can only be described as awe-inspiring. The brilliant weaver includes a panoply of beloved Caucasian motifs including square-petaled rosettes alongside latch hook and S-shaped devices, adding enigmatic calligraphy upon the coveted midnight indigo ground, The medallions themselves are a major creative focus while a masterclass border suite dazzles with its astonishing diversity that remains completely cohesive to the rug as a whole. This is an exceptional example that is never seen from such a "late" date for this sub-style. Learn About This Rug Type
