Tribal Carpet with Medallion Design
Not on view
The red ground of this carpet, with its eight-pointed shape, recalls earlier medallion carpets from Anatolia. The central motif, divided into alternating blue and white sectors, however, is reminiscent of nomadic gul or tribal emblems, and strongly suggests the Turkmen heritage of the carpet’s Anatolian village weaver.
