(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery")õVarious 19th century Kashan workshops weaving in the Mohtasham style developed unique signature color palettes and field and border treatments. This extremely finely knotted, perfectly preserved rug is a resplendent example of such creativity. Here, the artistic direction is chromatic, emerging from the incredible papaya hue that fills the centermost blossom. The varying echoes of this color strategically lead the eye to wander through the vivid, magically diverse array of exquisitely drawn flowers. Expressing the sunís manifestations is part of Persian artistry and the especially vibrant treatment at the top of the rug is likely invoking the sunís presence at high noon. The midnight indigo base of its deeply compelling, varied border design creates a dramatic foil to this solar theme. Learn About This Rug Type
