CAUCASIAN KARAGASHLI SHIRVAN, Southeast Caucasian
4' 6" x 6' 10"
137cm x 208cm
With its infectious energic atmosphere, this is a singular rendition of the famed Karagashli Shirvan style that immediately captivates the viewer with its unbridled cheerful expression. The pulsating field harbors a prolific depiction of horses, birds and people in a panoply of every imaginable shape, size and color. Mosaic-like medallions and crimson finials are intricately designed, fluctuating between warm and cool palettes. The extraordinary turquoise border with its multi-colored crab motif in a rhythmic procession offers an inspired spacious simplicity to the activity of the field. With wonderfully heavier pile condition, this tribal treasure is made with a notably fine weave and lustrous wool that amplifies the alluring crispness of each symbol.
