Azilal Wild Card

3,400.00

An exceptional example of how modern old Azilals can read. Impractically long and not at all shy, it plays by its own rules, a statement as much as a rug. That expressionist bent defines much of the region’s art, but it is really on show here. The materials, a mix of commercially available acrylic yarns and hand-spun local wool, are also typical in an area where weavers use whatever is at hand. The palette is bold, in black and white, tomato red, sunshine yellow, pine green, and, on one half of the piece, an electric blue. Geometry orders it with squares upon squares, but they open to two amorphous, organic medallions. These resemble hamzas, iconic protective symbols, but they are too abstract to identify with certainty. It remains a guessing game, clearly one woman’s unique vision and a true work of art.
