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 create a beautifully complex field or pattern
  • A classic, eight-pointed star stands for balance and harmony
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A symmetrical overhead view of a floral rosette
Region of Origin

Woven in Southeastern Anatolia in the region of Hakkari,Turkey by the Herki Kurdish Tribal group, who are well known for their exquisite weaving, which use naturally dyed glossy wool, resulting in bright and vivid colors.
