Azilal Mod Squad
9'9" by 5'6"

Organic geometry and natural tones in a beautiful example of an old style modernist Azilal. It is proof that the oldest pieces often read the most modern. Stunning skill starts with the materials, showing off the exceptional High Atlas wool, finely spun, undyed and silky. Its rough grid of chestnut brown on worn, veriegated cream, stands out and provides light contrast for the soft peach strokes that cover half the piece. A ground of irregular stripes echoes the pile palette and, with age, comes through as deep shadowing. The uneven wear leaves the brown pile long and much ground showing, a complex interplay between horizontal and vertical. Traditional loose weave lets the pile lay flat, highlighting the effect. The substantial wear is typical for a rug of this age and adds immeasurably to the piece.
