In this refreshingly singular, exquisitely detailed take on the beloved "Garden of Paradise" theme, two effusively detailed cypress trees flank interlocking plants whose blossoms span the gamut from rose to carnations to apples and a plethora of others. The level of detailing and shadings attest to its maker's great weaving dexterity and her vision of the abundance of the natural world in which she spent her life. The tremendous range of complementary colors she accessed features many hues that are very rarely seen in naturally dyed rugs, including incredibly challenging to yield pale to deeply saturated greens and diluted to saturated rose reds. Ever-closer inspection reveals countless endearing flourishes, such as bushels of grapes in the two spandrels. At over 150 years old, this botanical treasure has continually been treated with great respect, as it retains even medium pile.
