("New Arrivals Gallery") Bearing a vigorous diagonal stripe design, traditional to the mountain village of Gendje, this festive piece showcases an exceptionally vivid selection of naturally dyed tones. Motifs of budding flower and boteh, with varying other iconic visitors, populate the diagonal stripes in breathtaking diversity. Striking hues of azure, madder red, coral, navy, and saffron shine brightly after more than a century, and their unpredictable juxtaposition to one another adds another layer of spontaneity, lending incredible vibrancy to the composition. Strings of dazzling diamonds adorn the tripartite border series redoubling the creative intensity of this incredibly charming art rug. Its beloved tribal motifs and vivid coloration are certain to illuminate any setting, while supremely good condition further enhances the tremendously joyful appeal of this folkloric woven gem.
