Brilliantly saturated crimson lights up the room in this glorious interpretation of a classic masterpiece in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Catalogued as an Indian carpet in a “floral stem and panel” design, dating to the first half of the 17th century, the original is knotted of very fine sheep’s wool on cotton and presents a dazzling array of thirteen colors dominated by deep red and royal blue. Both the original and its modern version display a tour de force of Mughal motifs that combine floral flourishes and leafy garlands with the formal geometry of cartouche elements and fanciful eight-pointed stars. Scintillating and special, the modern piece is elegantly detailed in sapphire, jade and carnelian, and is completed by a narrow red-gold border.
