SERAPI HERIZ, Northwest Persian
4' 10" x 6' 10"
147cm x 208cm
Late 19th Century
This celebrative iteration of the creative style transition from the 19th-century Serapi into early 20th century Heriz presents lively colors and unpretentious artistry in a seldom encountered area-size format. Likely taking inspiration from the deeply folkloric rugs of the nearby village of Bakshaish, its well-spaced abstracted pattern offers an assortment of evocative botanical motifs layered for maximum depth and visual impact. Every flowerhead, leaf, and circuitry like vinery shimmers on a strawberry-hued ground. The abundance of coral, sage green, icy blue, and camel-ochre create compellingly soft chromatic contrasts. Superb abrash striations impart a palpable sense of subtle movement and depth that is particularly noticeable in the fascinating field. A spacious rosette and oakleaf border illuminates the midnight ground like flashes of neon. Delightfully, it remains in even medium pile condition with a splendid patina.
