Bakshaish style rugs are distinguished by bold, expressive even expressionist lines and motifs. Bakshaish rugs adopt the style and feeling of the smaller tribal rugs and scale them up to room-size pieces. They may utilize medallion or allover designs descended from classical antique Persian rugs, but they translate such models into a much more abstract and expressive idiom reminiscent of Caucasian village rugs like Kazaks. Sometimes, like village pieces, they make use of scattered space-fillers; alternatively they may apply a principle of open space to allow the effects of the drawing to stand out graphically.
