New Afghan Transitional 11'11"×15'1"
The field of this large carpet takes its elements from traditional Persian weaving. The long, blue cyprus tree figures and floral shapes arranged in a red field can be seen in many other, much older pieces. Like many transitional pieces, this carpet finds a way to break from tradition – here it is the border which stands apart. Unusually wide, it is filled with a winding, organic pattern of colored bands in red, orange and blue against a navy background. Handmade in Afghanistan.
