Curator's Notes
Motifs
  • A classic design, diamond medallions create a dynamic interplay of sub-symmetries and geometric shapes
  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • Commonly associated with the Yoruk nomads of Anatolia, latch-hook ornaments and details protect against ill-will and sources of danger like wild animals or natural catastrophes
Region of Origin

Milas is the center of weaving in Western Turkey and its rugs often feature graphically arresting geometric patterns.

Material Details
