Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Geometric designs feature angular edges and shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • Typically associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, these latch-hook ornaments are believed to protect against sources of danger—including ill will, wild animals, and natural disasters
Region of Origin

Milas is a major center for weaving in western Turkey—rugs from this region can be recognized by their fascinating geometric patterns.
