FERAHAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
8' 9" x 13' 1"
267cm x 399cm
Possessing both majesty and grace, this exceptionally finely crafted carpet of the celebrated, elite Ferahan Sarouk genre is an enrapturing study of how divergence of scale can create a surprisingly unified harmony of forms. The resplendent almost regal medallion, resting on an equally exquisite brick red field, exemplifies the inimitable grandeur of this style. Radiating a faceted jewel-like quality through its lambent wool and deeply saturated colors, notably shimmering saffron blush, rich pistachios, and forest green, the mastery of color contrasting is apparent. Gentle hues shifts throughout carefully elicit a subtle rippled texture that the eye craves. Its crisply rendered design and the artistically asymmetrical placement of its filigree vinery and floral motifs are indicative of the superb quality work seen in the finer 19th-century examples.
