(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Silhouetted on a midnight indigo ground, the entrancing Bidjov design with its archetypal split palmettes and radiating sunburst motifs is particularly beautiful. A small niche eloquently augments an artistic sense of ascending movement with the larger totems in procession surrounded by attendant spontaneous chains of naïve, individually rendered tiny rosettes. A diverse and splendiferous palette includes masterfully dyed cornflower blue, teal, saffron and auburn creating a truly jewel-toned rug. Enthusiasts of Caucasian artistry will gravitate to the unusual spaciousness of its classic interlock border, which intentionally compresses and expands as it progresses. Learn About This Rug Type
