Curator's Notes


A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey). Lined with a repeating set of three medallions to create multiple points of visual interest and direction.

Artisanal and tribal, geometric designs feature angular edges
