Heriz

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

This intriguing and beautiful small format Heriz carpet draws a classic central medallion field rendered with heightened clarity through curvilinear drawing. This is unusual for Heriz and Serapi type carpets, which are instead known for their more linear geometric forms. Foliage and blossoms, as well as the contours of the red cartouche shaped field and indigo central medallion, are each rendered with clear delineation and an emphasis on elegance. The design is balanced, as is the color clarity and contrast. The weaver also employed a subtle but sophisticated use of 'abrash,' or color modulation.
