Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • Deeply meaningful symbols to the women weavers of Anatolia, these interconnected medallions represent pregnancy and motherhood
  • 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

Region of Origin
