Rows of ‘boteh’ paisleys, drawn in fiery saturated tones of red and terra cotta, are illuminated against the medium blue ground of this Afshar bag face. The perimeter of each boteh is traced with small colorful squares, rendering a shimmering, abstract effect. The diagonal striped border adds a sense of motion, while the specific use of white furthers contrast and depth.
