Beautiful Folk Art Vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan Berber Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Moroccan Rugs, Circa Date: 3rd Quarter Of The 20th Century – Like so many traditional Beni Ourain Moroccan Berber rugs, this beautiful vintage rug uses clearly defined lines to establish rigid points of contact and movement. The grounding effect established by these lines is present throughout the masterpiece itself, which allows the other movements and variations to build off of the existing lines. A single beige landscape dominates the background, and horizontal lines are present at the bottom and top of the piece to establish a basic frame for the foreground. At the forefront of the simple field are several diamond configurations, all erratically arranged, as if to demonstrate natural crystalline growth. The lines used are also echoed by surrounding lines and elements, which results in a kaleidoscopic effect that adds thematic contrast to the grounding within. In addition to the various diamonds, several arrows and tree-like shapes add further depth to the rug’s foreground.
