(High-Decorative) (Featured in catalog Vol. 29, No. 1, p.5) Clearly a personal artistic exploration, this unpretentious piece uses virtually none of the archetypal designs traditional to Kazak rugs. Instead, it departs into more original, beautifully free-form overscale motifs that convey a welcome sense of exuberance and naivet. Its weaver made no attempt to center its two diamond medallions, creating extra space at the top of the field that is taken up with a small diamond form. Its colors communicate further the unabashed joyfulness of the entire rug. The piece has clearly been cherished, as it comes to us in heavier pile condition.
