Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges and primitive shapes—like diamonds, squares, lattices, and stylized animals
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • 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
  • A series of geometrically stylized waves represents water—a vital element of life
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
