Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A central medallion anchors the motif to a center focal point from which the design blooms out and is balanced by complementary design elements
  • A hexagonal shape (also known as a “lozenge”) represents the female form and fertility
  • A geometric, step-like pattern which expresses the primitive, artisanal qualities of weaving from nomadic cultures
  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)
  • The central design is bookended by banner skirt panels
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
Region of Origin

Ortakoy, found in central Anatolia, is known for geometric Anatolian motifs with hexagonal medallions and stepped details.
