(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Fall/Winter New Arrivals Event“) At over 150 years old, this very early Shahsavan runner reveals profound clarity of color and exquisite, original drawing, where each motif is incredibly individual. The alternating hexagon and lozenge medallions is an inventive, unique patterning that lends a sense of stateliness to the tribal piece. Its aged color palette is sublime, shimmering with patina. Look closely to see the fascinating abstraction of paired blossoming trees, no two expressed exactly alike, each effortlessly juxtaposing tonal values that would be a highly compelling focus if presented alone in a modern art piece.
