Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • A series of repeating medallions fill out the field in balanced, ornamental details
  • A tree of life (a symbol found in several religions around the world) alludes to the Garden of Eden
  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • Just like a modern-day barber's pole, this pattern features alternating slanted stripes
Region of Origin

Dosemealti, located in southwestern Anatolia (just north of Antalya’s seaside location), is well known for rugs that depict Anatolian-style motifs, all centered around a stylized cross.

Material Details
