("New Arrivals Gallery") Notably elegant for a village piece, this refined Heriz room-size carpet displays an inventively florid allover pattern. Evoking a sense of movement via intentional vertical asymmetry, every botanical element, from feathery fronds to flowerheads, stands out with distinction through adroit outlining and breathtaking shimmering color. Painterly hues of pale gold, teal and azure blues, coral and emerald to mint greens vitalize this extremely compelling visual tapestry. In heavier pile condition, its resilient lanolin-rich wool has irrepressible incandescence. An evocative, rare citrine-toned main border harbors a skillfully woven classical Persian Shah Abbas design, perfectly completing this sumptuous piece.
