Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A geometric, step-like pattern often found in Anatolian designs
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
Region of Origin
