Curator's Notes
Motifs

  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • Architectural elements represent significant structures like monuments, churches, temples, and ruins

  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A simple, but classic design—zig-zag patterns represent water as a vital element in life
