Price upon request
This luscious piece epitomizes the uniquely myriad artistic ambiances of a timeless style, highly revered by our clients over the decades. Eschewing the usual bold medallion most often found in Serapi rugs, here a cruciform centerpiece engages with the lyrically drawn botanical construct in the field. All compositional layers fluently engage and intermingle with each other, creating a strikingly beautiful composition rife with fascinating variations awaiting discovery. The stunning, exotic colors of this evocative piece exude a tangible magnetism. Expressive tonal shifts known as abrash, allowed to shine through the baroque field structure, adds vital depth in no less than five different hues of magical blue. Undulating vinery connects the tumbling flowerheads that animate the lambent sapphire border. Its heavy pile condition is greatly enhanced by naturally luminiferous wool.
