A uniquely time-matured aesthetic elevates this particularly evocative Serapi carpet, still in heavier pile condition, to a true work of art. Greatly enhanced by naturally luminiferous mountain wool, the resplendent watercolor-like gem and desert tone palette of this evocative piece exhibits a magnetic, harmonious attraction to enthusiasts of folk artistry which reads like a codex toward eons-old tribal roots. A completely novel Aegean green medallion is drawn with dramatic, triptych effect enclosing a single rosette and crossed flowers. Its initial form rippling outward in successive waves of rose quartz and golden sand, culminating in a delightfully overscale outer perimeter. Exotically drawn anchor pendants balance the gravity within a rich carnelian reserve of unusual depth, filled with a botany of playful, slight variations. Lyrically rendered, blossom-centered escutcheons and coral vinery animate the lambent sapphire border.
