Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
  • A bold set of ram’s horns represents strength and bravery
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • Patterned with geometrically serrated leaves
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
