(Decorative) ("New Arrivals Gallery")This dramatic Persian village rug has a charismatic floral geometry that compels the viewer glance twice at its striking design and almost psychedelic composition. A very novel, compound medallion is flanked by robust, serrated appendages that evoke the celestial dragon motif, all of which are balanced proportionally with the unusually narrow main border. Its cheerful color palette includes a delectable rich carnelian reserve, bejeweled with burnished golds, electric blue, peach tones, coral and ivory highlights to great harmonious effect by weavers who were exceedingly skilled in color combination, deftly juxtaposing azure and sky blues along with numerous accents of seldom-found celadon green. This magnificent over 100-year-old Heriz is a veritable tour de force of color, style and condition and is particularly appropriate for either modern contemporary or more traditional settings.
