(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery")In this astonishing, early rendition of the famed Bidjov Shirvan sub-style, the highly expressive structures along the vertical central line, all of which are different in design, are only one of the many entrancing elements that vividly express the joy of life of its high-mountain tribal weavers. In this seamlessly organized setting, each Shirvan rosette is in the form of an Endless Knot that along with sunbursts, double ram's horn motifs and highly stylized dragons, each of which falls into its natural place, an outcome far different than in the rigid positioning of motifs found in lesser examples. Curling stylized fronds and a multitude of sharply rendered latch hook forms and blossom devices fill every available space of the deep indigo field, while an especially dynamic interlocking main border shines with saturated natural hues of cornflower blue, fire brick red, golden wheat and teal. In extraordinarily good condition. Learn About This Rug Type
