Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A series of repeating medallions create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • 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 classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
Region of Origin

Malatya, found in central Anatolia, is known for its coarsely knotted rugs and geometric designs woven by Kurdish tribes.
