Klimt-inspired Area Rug?

Gk023 I've just finished reading "The Painted Kiss," Art Historian Elizabeth Hickey's fictionalized relationship between Gustav Klimt and the woman in his masterpiece. (The book is compelling with vivid imagery and peppered with enough historic facts to make her imagined account very believable.) The controversial Austrian painter's "The Kiss" is a favorite of mine -- and an inexpensive reproduction is in my foyer. The gold hues simply pop on my deep plum wall -- imagine how much popping the original version in gold leaf would do!

When I saw Momeni's rug, Capra, I couldn't help but notice Glimt-inspired gold-colored sinuous forms and telltale geometric shapes within a sea of midnight blues.
