(High-Decorative) (“NEW ACQUISITION")A virtuoso medallion-within-a-medallion design provides the extraordinarily compelling central feature of this astonishingly innovative and evocative Ferahan Sarouk carpet. Enclosed in an organically contoured, scrolling melon surround of unique design, the grand medallion introduces layer upon layer of novel patterning, each with its own entirely different system of colors. The medallion is much broader and more spacious than usual, contributing this horizontal elongation to the village carpet’s expansive and immersive effect. Cloudlike ivory compartments in each cornerpiece are actually blossom motifs, rendered impressionistically and in a grand scale. Alongside, jewel and fruit tone accents profoundly animate the design.
