Curator's Notes

Motifs

  • Triangular amulet design—believed to protect against evil spirits and bad luck
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
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.
