Using bold drawing, large scale of design, and radiant natural color, this magnificent over-sized medallion carpet defines the Heriz genre of weaving. A balance of composition is matched by harmony of color. The central medallion layers tones of rose, slate a and blue which unfold against a deep madder ground. Sky-blue palmettes act as anchors at the top and bottom of the field as a network of floral devices take form throughout. White is expertly used, highlighting both the corners of the medallion and corner-pieces of the field as golden camel accents throughout are accentuated by a classic camel-ground palmette border.
