BAKU RUNNER, Southeast Caucasian
3' 8" x 10' 7"
112cm x 323cm
("Gold Coasts Collection") Gleaming jadeite greens, carnelian, cerulean, and terra-cotta tones are seamlessly integrated in this finely-knotted tribal design woven in the wealthy Caspian port town of Baku. A series of differing medallions are nested along a simulated formal garden waterway, their precise placement revealing the incredible dexterity and confident conceptual grasp held by the tribal weaver. Spontaneous ornamental details magically endow this rug with their enigmatic attributes, including delightful 'Wheels of Life", S-runes, age-old 'ashik' emblems, and a panoply of polygons that amplify the deeply personal artistry of this regal Caucasian rug. Its superb, heavier pile condition ensures its long future, transforming a passageway into an elevated expanse.
