The inspiration for this superb piece is a 17th century 'Polonaise', a design of Polish origin woven at a workshop of the Persian court. It presents a marvelous artist's conception of sinuous vines that form flowing, flower-laden arabesques across a dazzling field of cherry red and deep apricot. Details in azure, jade and sapphire add to the sparkling effect. Of special note are the sapphire-toned oversized blossoms that spill off the field and peek out from the intricate four-layered border, following the design of the antique Polonaise. It creates one more element of visual excitement in a rug that can barely contain its sensual, curvaceous appeal.
