(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Exemplifying the crisply rendered tribal imagery and saturated, nuanced coloration that are the foundations for the very best of Caucasian Lesghi rugs, this diminutive example in nearly square mat size boasts an artistic fluency that attests to both its virtuoso weaver and substantial age. Upon its clear ivory field, three well-proportioned traditional “Lesghi Star” motifs, two in a radiant periwinkle blue and the third in deep maroon, are aligned along a central vertical axis. A multiplicity of minute tribal devices fills the vertical edges of the reserve, while “Wheel of Life” motifs possessing great movement frame its horizontal edges, as well as nestling in the recesses between medallions. An expansive, repeating sunburst main border is presented in alternating hues, with a deeply endearing us of three minute stars navigating its lower left corner. Learn About This Rug Type
