("New Arrivals Gallery") The particular pattern language shown in a piece of this quality comes up only on occasion. It has a profoundly artistic spirit with a sense of spontaneity that shines. Sparkling flowerhead duos of differing scales are rendered in chiseled clarity. Supportive tribal ornaments are orderly yet not static, with Trees of Life, birds in profile, and canines perched on budding stems. Adept use of color and variety of hues further enlivens this handsome, entirely successful endeavor. While the ivory border is adorned with a super stylized tulip meander often paired with this field paradigm, the tiny tasseled talismans in the vertical bands is endearing. Their time-honored role is to magically shield the owner from the envious eye. This exceptionally proportioned tribal work is aesthetically sublime and captures a mature artistic essence. Its extremely good condition defies the reality of its significantage.
