In many ways, this rug is the most interesting piece in our collection. At a first glance, it evokes a normal Boucherouite rug with compositions of contrasted geometrical figures that produces explosive colors. Only this rug is distinguished by the presence in its center of figurative motifs, particularly surprising by their subjects and their arrangement. In the heart of a blue-night diamond decorated with white teeth, we find two pots of flowers opposite each other - realistic and weird at the same time.
This unlikely central medallion is surrounded by two enigmatic shapes that plunge almost the everything into a universe of video arcade games. The yellow "ship" seems animated by reactors in flames that
propel it towards an abominable snowman. The astonishing modernity of this composition, combined with the perfect preservation of white and pink, makes us almost forget that we face an old piece that has
already passed through several generations.
