Small repeating colorful flowers illuminate against the modulated indigo blue and dark chocolate ground of this happy Kurdish rug. These elements are artistically rendered using subtle changes in orientation and direction of the rows, some lining up purely horizontally and others forming diagonal rows from left and then right. Contrasting with the dark field, similar floral motifs are drawn against the white border along with the occasional rendering of simple folk animals. In the spirit of great Kurdish village weaving the color used in this piece is exceptional.
