Bakshaish (Bakhshaish or Bakhshaysh), late nineteenth century- This magnificent allover Bakshaish is unusual for its allover composition. But the majestic field composition of interlacing arabesques is incomparable on its own terms for the sheer power and beauty of its drawing and soft colors set beautifully against the pale camel ground. The final touch is the fine, detailed, lace-like as a complement and contrast to the monumental graphics of the field. If superior quality involves uniqueness as well as skill and taste, this is a masterpiece.
