The look of an authentic antique is achieved in this superb piece that seems to reflect the patination of the ages. Its inspiration comes from 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. While the design is abundant and fecund, the lush florals are elegantly subdued by the delicate palette of soft ivory, golden beige and opalescent shades of light sky blue. Of special note are oversized blossom shapes that spill off the field and peek out from the intricate four-layered border, following the design of the antique Polonaise. It's a detail that adds depth to a rug filled with sensual, curvaceous appeal.
