An unusually diminutive medallion rests at the center of this magnificent Heriz, serving as the nucleus of a kaleidoscopic universe of abstract flowers in a pleasing range of scales. Throughout, the composition is impressively balanced, as each artful, individually drawn flower and serrated leaf adds its own inventive note. Heriz carpets with sophisticated, buoyant mid-range color palettes such as this spirited piece have become uncommon in today's market. A beautiful range of rare greens plays brilliantly throughout the carpet's verdant allover pattern, which rests against a perfectly complementary warm brick ground. A skillful application of abrash intentional color transitions gently introduces yet more harmonious hues covering the chromatic spectrums of maize, coral, burnt sienna, and effulgent cerulean blues. This alluring, turn-of-the-20th-century village carpet is replete with tremendous dynamism and energy that would significantly elevate any interior space. At over 120 years of age, it is still as durable as it is delightful.
