(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")Infused with stirring, extremely subtle gradations of evocative abrash, this exciting open field Bakshaish reveals the full artistic splendor of its nearly 150-year-old heritage. Except for a simple, crisply drawn medallion, the deliberately unadorned field focuses the attention on its watercolor-like striations of myriad soft carnelian tonalities produced by that skillful natural dyeing. The undulations of cerulean blue in the reserve also adds depth overall creating a riveting three dimensional effect. Framing this impactful field, the main border of this minimalist room-size carpet contains a repeated totemic sun motif that effectively continues the rug’s elemental ambiance. From the highly regarded Bakshaish weaving style, this creative piece happily remains in extremely good condition. Learn About This Rug Type
