Vintage Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-Twentieth Century – Here is an absolutely intriguing vintage carpet – a mid-twentieth century Moroccan composition, characterized by a vibrant and colorful composition. The colors utilized in this vintage Moroccan carpet are nothing short of hypnotic – the deep maroon of the field is rich and vibrant; and the oranges and browns that serve as the foundation for the detail work throughout the rug are its perfect contrast. Tribal and abstract detail work dance throughout this carpet, occupying just about every place they can. Eccentric shapes, including stars and diamonds, float throughout the surface of the carpet, with no clear underlying structure. The result of all of this disconnected, vibrantly colored detail work throughout the carpet infuses it with a dynamic energy, and calls to mins the abstract aesthetics of the great mid-century painters. Delightfully tribal and abstract, this vintage Moroccan carpet is an excellent example of the aesthetic power of disorder and idiosyncrasy.
