Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • Lined with three geometrically stylized Anatolian medallions
  • 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 pattern of repeating hooks mirrors a set of breaking waves
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
Region of Origin
