("Featured in our new print catalog")Large room-size Persian Ferahan Sarouk carpets possessing such exceptional quality of craftsmanship, individual artistry, and excellent condition as this piece are few and far between, and widely sought after. As a paragon of Persian "Town" weaving, portraying the harmonious interplay between majesty and delicacy, it is awe-inspiring, a profoundly moving artwork from the magnificent Ferahan Sarouk aesthetic. A kaleidoscopic medallion imbues its surroundings with palpable refinement and surprise. One could spend years discovering every improvised, free-drawn nuance in this bursting botanical reverie. Ethereal pendants are progenitors of the immense variety of flora that appear to tilt and sway among the rippled red reserve. Through their astonishing skill, highly evolved artistic sensitivity, and mastery of a patient craft, the virtuoso creators of this carpet have ensured that from whichever angle it is viewed, something extraordinary awaits the eye. An extremely engaging border treatment contains anchor-shaped palmettes and peony blossoms accompanied by a cadre of budding and flowering vinery in a rainbow palette reminiscent of stained glass. Appropriately framing this tour de force carpet, a many-faceted, multi-hued floral pattern densely bejewels the main border with stunning detail.
