Bakhshaish rugs from the Heriz district of Northwest Persia display a heightened village sensibility and freedom of execution. This happy Bakhshaish carpet draws foliage in shades of green, gold, blues, and rose against a vibrant madder red ground. While this compilation at first may appear to be an ‘overall’ field design, ornament is actually centered around a quatrefoil arrangement of palmettes. Framing the field is complementary aquamarine border encompassing stylized rosettes interspersed with foliage.
