("Spring/Summer 2019 Print Catalog, p.19")This extraordinary folk art carpet woven in the mountains of Azerbaijan reveals an Impressionistic vision of a lush forest. Note the charming pairs of birds roosting between each tree and a brilliant color striation in the spacious sapphire blue main border. The extraordinary striation technique found in the best Bakshaish carpets create a tremendous sense of animation in a way virtually never seen. This effect is transformative, both on an interior and the fortunate individuals who inhabit it. Here, a multiplicity of tonal variations shift in every design and in the ground behind them, as if all were vibrating like a tuning fork to an unseen common wavelength of energy.
