A vague, effervescent echo of a Mihrab fills the field of this peachtoned rug. Contained within the Mihrab is a central motif in the vein of a tree of life; this tree is traditionally seen to be supporting the sky and providing a path from earth to heaven. The yellow, gold and saffron tones of the design elevate the heavenly aspect, while a running latticed guard stripe in grassy green speaks of the earth below.
The rosettes in the border mirror the field whilst the pink arabesque tendrils, curling unpredictably, add a lively design and colour element.
The strong, wide border and the small field, with strokes of intense red, provide a harmonious and balanced composition.
