4' 0" x 11' 6"
122cm x 351cm
Superlatively crafted endowing this piece with captivating clarity, this regal hallway runner is adorned with a wealth of entrancing symbols. Its most extraordinary feature is its field's coloration, offering exceptionally precious and difficult to render shades of pine and juniper green, with numerous deft abrash subtleties. An unusually potent, vividly striking assembly of glistening saturated colors fill the vertical row of stepped-edge conjoined hexagonal medallions. Myriad tribal garnishments, including highly novel interrupted emblems reminiscent of the Coptic cross, can be seen. Its royal yellow ground main border supports a powerfull pattern of serpentine S-glyphs revered by symbol-using peoples since ancient times.
