("New Arrivals Gallery") This is a very original design from a quite traditional style introducing a unique handling of the field. Reaching through the beautiful borders to touch the outer final band of color, the spacious Spanish carmine center is all-commanding, ingeniously overcoming the confinement a completed frame would bring to its grandeur. Illumined within this expanse is the almost perfect circle at the center, created by the cleverly executed placement of richly hued foliage containing three different species of exotic birds. Its vertical looped boughs encasing a lotus flower along with the fluidly drawn pendants construct a striking vertical axis. Adding tremendous elegance and refinement, four fancifully ornate golden escutcheons grace each corner. Constructed of a mind-boggling weave and famously lustrous Manchester wool, this superbly plush, ultra-soft jewel offers fabulous plush pile.
