Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • Crosses are a fundamental element of rug design (occasionally alluding to faith)
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
Region of Origin

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

Material Details
