Mahal

c. 1900
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

This majestic Mahal carpet from central Persia blends naturalism and fantasy with magical results. Against a camel ground, a series of colorful palmettes, organized within a grid composed of ivory tendrils, are repeated in perfect scale. Though originating from Persian design of the 18th century, the freedom and dynamism with which these elements are rendered is seemingly unique, as green and red foliage is interspersed with grapes. This imagery is rarely (f ever) encountered in carpet design, and imparts a special vitality to the overall composition.
