Lush as chinchilla, richly patinated tones of mocha brown bring special warmth to the room in this sumptuous interpretation of a classic masterpiece. Now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the original antique is catalogued as an Indian carpet in a 'floral stem and panel' design, dating to the first half of the 17th century. Knotted of very fine sheep's wool on cotton, it presents a dazzling array of thirteen colors dominated by deep red and royal blue. Both the original and this modern version display a tour de force of Mughal motifs that combine floral flourishes and leafy garlands with the formal geometry of cartouche elements and fanciful eight-pointed stars. Mesmerizing in its detail, the modern piece is enlivened with elements of clear robin's egg blue, lending a fresh beauty to the ancient design. Completed by a narrow border that maintains the delicate effect.
