HERIZ SILK, Northwest Persian
2' 3" x 3' 1"
69cm x 94cm
("New Arrivals Gallery") With its prized silk construction and ultra-fine knotting, this delightful mat-sized Heriz exemplifies lyrical artistry and dexterity that imbues it with a regal elegance that belies its size. The flowering boughs extending from the shimmering cinnamon toned center medallion coalesce with luminescent sapphire tendrils in an intermingled alchemy atop a sand reserve. Undertones of apricot and orange blossom are present in both the field and border. The exquisitely understated abrash color shifts throughout add a subtle visual texture and sense of depth in this admirable piece, which also happens to be in nearly pristine condition at well over a century of age.
