This elegant over-sized Amritsar carpet from northern India was woven with a subtle and soft palette and graceful large-scale persianate drawing in the tradition of its Mughal era predecessors. Over-all design is drawn with sophistication. In the manner often seen with eighteenth-century Indian textiles, the ornament used in the center of the piece is of larger scale and more openly spaced while the drawing in the corner areas becomes more varied and detailed creating subtle demarcations of space and centering. This is further achieved through the left / right asymmetry of design and drawing.
