Do blonde rugs have more fun?-:) This delightfully charming Bakshaish certainly does with its combination of absolutely endearing tribally rooted graphics and potent contrasting color tones that exert a magnetic appeal. Drifting alone on a naturally luminous, deftly striated sand-toned reserve an island of dark mulberry trimmed in gold offers wild Marandi chickens, gazelles, two gleaming rosettes, and a centerpiece that is totally geometricized. These fantastic motifs are repeated in differing hues within the coruscating ocean blue spandrels. A respectful margin encircles the main band, allowing the eye to focus its attention on these elemental, simply expressed abstract forms. Heavy pile allows this imaginative collectible piece could be placed in a relatively high-traffic area, or preserved on a wall space where it could be fully enjoyed at eye level.
