(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This enigmatic, graphically stunning room-size Caucasian flatweave carpet presents the mind-boggling embroidery technique that is well-loved by many connoisseurs. Its rich carnelian reserve is the backdrop for three visually textured overscale medallions, each containing a cosmos of age-old motifs. Part of this tribal textile’s great appeal is the crystal clear definition the embroidery bestows on the ancient patterning, exemplified the radical, disarticulated ’Stars of Wisdom’ housed in different sized octagons. The mesmerizing series of borders include two with a Zorastrian-based, “backwards S” symbol, an intricate water inner border and the powerful “running dog” at the edge. Learn About This Rug Type
