Grand, verdant, and well-tended. Agricultural symbols abound in Berber art, representing abundance and fertility, but a fully green rug is rare. The color of Islam, it is usually not used underfoot. But in this stunning piece, both color and symbols are quite literal, depicting a cultivated and flourishing garden. A fence-like band divides it into six plots, a symmetry mirrored within the plots themselves where crops grow. Two particularly floral takes on the traditional eight-pointed star dominate the center, visual anchors in an intricate composition. In densely-knotted high pile such that the grass green sways. With accents of lilac, cornflower, plum, and cream. Wheat and mauve crop up as well. It is visually stunning to be sure, but beneath the beauty lies a weaving of impressive skill and technique.
