Rows of large "boteh" (paisleys) drawn in shades of blue, green, and yellow with punctuations of white and black are set against a vibrant, contrasting madder-red ground in this happy rug from the south Caucasus. In one respect, this piece may be seen as a large pile rendition of popular Persian textiles, such as shawls of the period. The general effect, however, is quite different. The larger scale of the boteh reinforces the specific characteristics of each one, rendering each almost with its own distinct animation. While the over-all elegance of design is preserved, it is imbued with the unique charm of a genuine folk weaving. Collection of William Hamilton.
