Originating from Afghanistan, this noteworthy circular rug boasts the remarkable precision of a Heriz design set within a tribal aesthetic. With a rich raspberry red background, the rug's primary color is a vivid and striking red.
Emanating with a symmetrical motif, the fulcrum of this Persian-inspired design rug is a medallion of deep, calming blue. From this central point, the theme of the design radiates outward and creates an intricate pattern of stylized floral motifs and angular vine patterns. This complex design unfolding through shades of red, blue, green, beige, and mustard forms a visually pleasing cross-like aesthetic that extends toward the periphery of the rug.
Guaranteeing a visually harmonious blend, the central design occupies itself within the confines of a multi-leveled border framing the central artwork. The initial internal border includes an intricate rhythmic pattern of simple geometric shapes and floral designs set against a peaceful beige background. This internal frame interplays between the interjections of red and blue, creating a subtly calming contrast against the vibrant central motif.
Progressing further away from the heart of the rug, the second layer of bordering unfolds into a more elaborate presentation of complex floral elements and vine-like patterns. This elaboration incorporates various shades of the primary colors namely the vibrant red, deep blue, earthy green, serene beige, and mustard yellows, all harmoniously woven together to create a visually appealing amalgamation.
To finalize the boundary of the composition, the outermost border unfolds a cascade of artistic finesse. It showcases an intense rhythmic dance of stylized floral motifs and vines on a beige border with brilliant dashes of the main colors. This edge embroidery makes the rug an exquisite piece to behold from every perspective.
The rug qualifies as a new type, created with the time-tested mixture of wool on cotton. It measures a sizeable 10 feet by 10 feet. Although the rug provides a suggestion of certain finesse found in antique items, the fraying on the edges could merely indicate a well-utilized rug. This piece appears to affirm the detail-oriented craftsmanship of its maker, boasting a rich heritage stemming from intricate Oriental and Persian designs.
