Heritage is a stunning and visually captivating portrayal of an Algerian carpet market, a much-treasured tradition in the country. Reminiscent of oil on canvas paintings such as Jean-Léon Gerome’s The Snake Charmer, 1879, Heritage demonstrates both the grandiosity and beauty of the tradition of rug manufacturing in Northern Africa.
Bound by two scenes: men gathering in a close debate in the foreground of the work and distant workers dangling a larger-than-life carpet over the room’s internal balcony, the viewer is instantaneously captured by the motive and elegant setting, as if transported to the carpet market themselves. There is a sense of lively action, debate and motion which brings the work, and its viewers, together.
