A splendid over-size antique Indian carpet that boasts a sprawling all over design of cypress trees, nesting birds and delicate florals. The beautifully detailed cypress tress are placed across perfectly symmetrical vertical axes along the field in soft moss green and gold featuring amazing color striations. On both sides of the crowns of cypresses are lovely little birds nesting in the lush vegetation in the open space between trees. The meticulous attention to detail apparent in the impressive rendition of minuscule florals filling the shimmering and distinctly Indian red expanse of the field is breath-taking. An exquisite seven-layer border adds more distinction and uniqueness to the overall design with another set of individually intricate floral and geometric patterns.
Despite its impressive size, the beauty created in this carpet is not necessarily one of scale but of a harmony of multitudes brought alive by a superb level of craftsmanship, inviting one on a stroll through a regal, lush and peaceful garden under the soft golden glow of the sun. The elegant opulence of this rug, distinctly reminiscent of Mughal courts of the 16th century is sure to elevate the look of all interiors without being too overwhelming.
