This energetic Shirvan rug draws serrated eight-pointed Lezghi stars in alternating madder red and indigo blue boxes. Though worn in areas the saturated color shines through with a particularly pleasing green used to outline alternating stars. The piece is framed with a madder-red kufic border imitating knot-work tracery ornament of the 13th century but named for its perceived resemblance to Arabic writing.
