(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") Boasting an innovative, harmonious palette and wonderfully ancient-looking design, this superbly folkloric artwork from the high mountains of Persian Azerbaijan yields yet another surprising pattern language from the masters of innovation. Continual nuances in color and spacing and spontaneously placed smaller-scale ornaments reveal the improvisational nature in an otherwise symmetrical layout. It realizes a level of balance and harmony that is only accessible through an inspired combination of approaches. The captivating alternation of light and shade is inventively amplified by the presence of camelhair pile, imparting its luminosity and warm presence throughout this timeless large room-size piece. The mesmerizing border design is a repetition of cubist flowerheads as a brilliant counterpoint to the inner workings of the field. Although some 140 years old, this superbly crafted Bakshaish with a generous use of prized undyed camelhair remains in outstanding condition.
