FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
3' 4" x 5' 0"
102cm x 152cm
(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") In the very hard-to-find 3x5 size for this coveted style, this Ferahan Sarouk "sweetheart" bursts with kaleidoscopic intensity through its profuse and inventive botanical forms. Gem-like pendants extend from the center medallion that contains highly stylized cypress trees arranged in radial order. The riveting use of a bold palette reminds the viewer of a painterís mastery that results in a highly successful juxtaposition of color. Stunning shades of burnished gold, coral, walnut, azure, tangerine, and difficult-to-render jade greens spring forth from the parchment reserve and rich cinnabar spandrels, and closer viewing reveals many more nuanced colors. Lovingly maintained in incredible floor condition with heavy pile, this over century-old art carpet will contribute a surprisingly endearing character to any traditional or contemporary setting in which it is displayed.
