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
  • An absolute classic, diamond-based designs create a beautiful and dynamic field of geometric shapes
  • Floral motifs are a staple in rug design—showing up in a variety of styles including natural, abstract, and geometric
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
  • 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 larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin
