Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
  • Repeating medallions create visual interest as medallions fill out the length of a runner with ornate details
  • A gazelle motif representing grace and dignity
  • Commonly associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, latch-hook ornaments and details protect against ill-will and sources of danger like wild animals or natural catastrophes
Region of Origin
