(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Luminous naturally-dyed colors emanating a warm patina give a powerful magnetism to this antique Karabagh rug. Vivid azure, aged ivory, saturated carnelian, and deep indigo combine in a way that allows the striking color contrasts to become a harmonious cohesion. The weaver's direct, unique connection with powerful forces in her life is apparent as this mesmerizing tribal piece delights the eye with ancient tribal patterns. Note the intruding ‘Diamonds of Strength’ populating the upper left and right corners including sacred crimson horses at center. The axis of octagonal ‘Wheels of Life’ medallions ground the energy of this expressive piece A firmly personal weaving that was utilized by 19th century tribespeople, this piece is in mostly even, medium pile condition.
