Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of this culture, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Nigde, a town in central Anatolia, is known for rugs with geometric Anatolian motifs featuring hexagonal medallions and hooked details.
