("New Arrivals Gallery") With splendid, highly appealing, naturally derived earth tones, this extremely finely knotted rug expresses the unique floral artistry for which the Ferahan Sarouk style is famed. A resplendent sixteen-point sunburst of peach and ripe pomegranate is a striking focal point, surrounded by a wonderfully structured arrangement of lotus blossoms and palmettes. Its multi-lobed medallion extends into pendulum pendants that sway among the casually symmetrical arrangement of stylized fronds, flowerheads, and vinery, all resting on a golden wheat tone field. Deeply hued indigo, parchment, atlas blue, moss green, and Burmese jade are further represented in its delightfully expansive color palette. This magical, higher-pile connoisseur-caliber piece In an extremely versatile smaller size would add an artful character to a variety of applications, including as wall art.
