("New Arrivals Gallery") This singular turn-of-the-20th-century Heriz carpet rises above the expectations of its particular weaving style and epitomizes this beloved village tradition's joyful, celebrative artistry. A beautiful flower medallion stretches across the blossom-laden sapphire blue reserve from a central lotus centerpiece. Its scintillating aqua blue color is reminiscent of an elaborate peristylium fountain that extends into adjacent "pools" shaped as flame palmettes. The expert abrash color striations create the appearance of a sun-dappled, rippling surface. A collection of elements embedded in the corner pieces reflects the medallion, perfectly balancing the many-faceted field pattern. Woven in the mountains of Persian Azerbaijan, every imaginative graphic design is joyfully filled with time-matured color. This skillfully executed art-level carpet would comfortably enhance any contemporary or traditional decor with its evocative abstract botanical motifs and luminous, perennially attractive hues. Its good pile and heavier handle mean it is as durable as enchanting.
