Description of Design and History 

This carpet, bearing no inscription, is woven by the weaver Shureshi. The photograph reveals the classical unity of design, in which the intricate construction of each ornament, the impeccably discreet pattern- symmetry of the various floral and foliate schemes, the reciprocality of the key-element outlines, the pattern echoes within the composition and something of the consistently logical, harmonious, yet versatile colour progression throughout the piece, all of which are testimony to the purity and virtuosity that attach to this work. The contribution of the knotting, pile wool and draftsmanship can only be experienced at first hand.
