An art-level carpet provides one-of-a-kind artistry that infuses even the grandest of rooms with an impressive impact that leaves one gobsmacked. Such is this magnificent oversize Bakhtiari in remarkable heavy-pile condition that is true to the richness of this tribe's storied weaving traditions. The exceptionally fine knotting known as "Bibibaf" ("Grandmother's Weave") present in this truly resplendent carpet was only accomplished by extremely mature weavers, thus the fitting moniker. This staggering work depicts an idyllic midnight garden theme of incandescent cypress and pomegranate trees, with additionally verdant botanical forms on an epic scale. Breathtakingly nuanced patterns give tremendous presence to every captivating visual element. Its dazzlingly saturated vegetally-dyed colors include spectacular golds, fiery scarlet, sage, indigo, and other luscious hues. Elegantly rendered calligraphy bedecks the main border.
