(High-Collectible) ("New Arrivals Gallery") This early rug from the nomadic Qashqai fully demonstrates why their artful weavings are held in such special regard among our clients. Replete with a veritable forest of highly stylized ‘Trees of Life’, a profusion of flowerheads and kaleidoscopic tribal devices are revealed. A vivid display of wondrously dynamic, masterfully dyed colors that include rarely found pistachio and emerald green, dexterously highlight all the nuanced detail, while the weaver's incredibly lucid juxtapositions of various hues create an impressive contrast, providing great opportunity for continual new discoveries. Very finely woven and constructed of luxuriantly soft wool, this remarkable nomad piece is still in heavier pile condition. Learn About This Rug Type
