(“Fall/Winter New Arrivals Event“) The Shirvan tradition contributed a wealth of evocative tribal motifs to the inimitable Caucasian pattern language. Here a composition of six niched medallions, reminiscent of those from Fachralo Kazak or Akstafa, create a singular squarish rug of mesmerizing impact. Serrated motifs abound, capturing a fascinating electrical character that is amazingly creative. The single celadon medallion defies expectation, as does the large boteh (paisley-like) motif, borrowed from Marasali Shirvan prayer rugs at the very center of the rug. Its four dissimilar borders are notably harmonious, with flashes of dexterous abrash enlivening this rug's exciting dynamic.
