(High-Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery") The famed Kazak folk artistry of the rugs woven at the highest reaches of the Caucasus Mountains is amply evident in this singular piece. Unapolegetically borrowing motifs from other Caucasian traditions, it partially deconstructs four ascending Lesghi Stars and encloses this in an abstracted rendition of of a serpentine wreath. Don’t miss the five tiny whimsically drawn humans at the vertically edges of the field. Its color palette is slective yet highly effective with radiant powder blues giving blue to sapphire nearby the bottom and top of its field and main border and a red carnelian red field tempered by not oft-encountered grayed teal, avacado green and rich pumpkin.
