("New Arrivals Gallery") Shirvan tribal rugs have long been prized for their inventiveness and artistic spontaneity, married with a fine weave and delectable colors. This dazzling representative features super stylized, emblematic blossoms arrested by spiky "halos" of glowing gold. This eye-catching pattern is endowed with almost endless charming variations and asymmetries to delight the attentive viewer with a gentle sense of movement. Tiny cloudband motifs and checkered clusters sparkle against the deep navy ground in the spaces between. Richly hued, vegetal-dyed colors are masterfully juxtaposed with maximum effect by a weaver who was a natural talent seasoned with years of experience and centuries of ancestral know-how. Even the crisply drawn "Dragon" borders are filled with nuance and variation, completing this brilliantly integrated, elemental composition. Luminous, even, medium pile heightens the clarity of the intriguingly esoteric motifs of this tribal gem. Its highly versatile size allows for a plethora of placement opportunities around the home.
