KURDISH CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
2' 7" x 6' 2"
79cm x 188cm
3rd Quarter, 19th Century
This superb folk art Kurdish piece reveals an uncanny sensitivity to harmony and simplicity in its utterly whimsical, seemingly spontaneous, yet perfectly balanced geometric imagery. We virtually never encounter pieces of this kind, a rare group of first-rate Kurdish runners whose innovative artistry and consummate quality materials are relished by connoisseurs. Here, elemental forms are reduced to their most essential and evocative: three uniquely elongated boteh-inspired medallions, starburst rosettes, diamonds, and totemic human figures are placed with perfect, offhand spaciousness. A wealth of nuanced and unexpected pastel tones brilliantly interacts with the natural luminosity of its abundance of pure, undyed camelhair.
