Knotted by hand, the plethora of flowers that could be seen on this took an eye-watering number of hours on the loom. Considerable skill and labor have gone into this to reproduce the picturesque local flora onto this rug. Varying tints and shades of brown, rich deep reds, and the occasional white make for a distinctly earthy palette, while the infusion of a dense azure into the central panel makes for an eye-catching color combination. Note the concentric panels and the curves that define them, which are highly characteristic of these famous rugs of the Orient. A minuscule strip of matching azure hemmed along the edges, and short ivory tassels along with the breadth, complete the picture.
