Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • 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 variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
