This highly graphic Afshar bag face draws a large central indigo-blue hexagon against a complimentary contrasting terra cotta field. Both are punctuated throughout by a checker-board network, giving the appearance of a field of flashing dots. The diagonally oriented barber-pole border, a traditional Afshar type, is a perfect compliment to the field and heightens a sense of motion. This piece most probably belonged to a particularly chic double saddle set, or 'khorjin'.
