The large areas of negative space throughout the ivory field seem to speak to the figures of blue that dance throughout, creating a deep impression of harmony and balance. Exuding a calm energy deeply consistent with the priorities of the Chinese artists responsible for its construction, this winning antique Chinese rug is a gorgeous manifestation of an increasingly popular and elegant style.
