KARAGASHLI SHIRVAN, Northeast Caucasian
3' 5" x 5' 8"
104cm x 173cm
("New Arrivals Gallery")
An unusually buoyant rendition of the Karagashli patterning, this captivating tribal piece offers a singularly ethereal palette of robin’s egg blue, burnt sienna, and fern green, framed by the ivory based chalice border. It is a sterling example of the elasticity of traditional Caucasian patterns to allow for brilliantly original iterations. Really none of its characteristics are expected: its linear shape, the sheer amount and constant alterations to the “double bird’s head” element, the extraordinarily expressive and humorous animal motifs, and the additional snowflakes within as well as without each rectangle. All this invention is done seamlessly as if weaving was as easy as brush strokes! Learn About This Rug Type
