The pile side of the vintage red Berber Moroccan rug displays the skeletal elements of the design on the reverse side. The reverse side of this spectacular rug from Morocco features oranges, reds, browns, and whites that bring together a feeling of earth and fire. The warm colors of the rug invite a feeling of home and hearth using tribal designs elements that give it a cozy, warm feeling.
The fascinating design does not have symmetry, even though it is based on individual shapes that do have symmetry. This focus is the attention of the viewer on individual design elements for a sense of rhythm and balance. The piece appears to be a section cutout of a larger work, both in the borders and main field of the design. This gives the design a sense that it is part of something much larger than what can be seen in the red carpet itself.
