Antique Ningsia, China, seventeenth century - More than three hundred years have not dimmed the brilliant design and classic formal elegance of this spectacular antique Ningsia carpet, made in an imperial Chinese workshop. The field displays a honeycomb lattice made up of hexagons comprised in turn by rhombuses with meander fillers. The rich, multi-leveled complexity of the design is nicely offset by the restrained palette of blues and tans, even in the surrounding meander border as well. To western eyes, the masterful field design appears almost three-dimensional, like clusters of cubes seen in perspective.
