Antique Oushak Carpet, Turkey, 1920 — Bold, striking sunset orange defines this powerful Turkish Oushak carpet. A deceptively simple pattern of tribal motifs rendered in sand, cold, and yellow emphasize the rich orange of the base. Floral motifs, notably the hyacinth and the peony, both symbols of extraordinary strength and power, dominate the strict geometry of this carpet. A crenellated fence in the outermost border frames delicate, simple renderings of flowers. These are surrounded by an intricate border dominated by bold renderings of the traditional peony motif. This intricate border gives way dramatically to the rich, bold heart of this extraordinary work. A flawlessly symmetrical geometry dominates the bright, bold heart of this antique carpet, neutral sand and flourishes of deep orange rendered into a stunning pattern. The bold color, flawless symmetry, and unique geometry together form a bright, bold artistic statement.
