MAHAJIRAN SAROUK, West Central Persian
10' 2" x 13' 4"
310cm x 406cm
In virtually unblemished condition with a lustrous, light-reflecting pile, this high-tier Mahajiran Sarouk carpet is a showcase of inspired early 20th-century Persian rug weaving. Its paramount wool quality allows for hues of unparalleled depth, from its resonant sapphire blue background to the glistening coral, khaki, and terracotta of its botanical motifs. The shift from the light to the dark side is so dramatic that it immediately evokes the transition from sunrise to sunset as the viewer travels around the rug. Its masterfully integrated design of exceptionally fluid, spaciously presented floral vinery seemingly floats around an elegant central ornament to stunning effect. With its dense pile and sturdy foundation, this art-level Persian rug is as practical as it is awe-inspiringly beautiful.
