This Beni Ourain rug from Morocco features diagonal shapes and strong, rigid lines to create a grounding presence in the vintage rug. The vibrant activity present at the center of the rug draws the viewer's attention away from the beige background, resulting in a presentation that is not unlike paint used on a canvas. Messy rows of jagged teeth line the left and right sides of the masterpiece, pointing inward to create a simple border that frames the activity at the core of the shaggy Moroccan rug. These teeth feature a fantastic variety of colors, ranging from vivacious oranges and yellows to cooler purples and greens. Several diamond shapes and angular-moving lines are active along the landscape, drawing attention to their paths of motion and generating interest against the backdrop. Several of the moving configurations seem to end in definitive figures, such as tassels and beetles, and brightly colored shrubs randomly dot the landscape.
