TURKISH KIZILIYAK PRAYER RUG, Turkey
3' 6" x 5' 5"
107cm x 165cm
This stunning prayer rug was created by the descendants of central Asian Turkoman Kiziliyak pastoralists. Some of the more intrepid struck out and migrated to Anatolia, taking their name and unique weaving traditions to be transmogrified in a new cultural landscape. The single-gabled niche showcases a gracefully drawn Tree of Life on a rich cinnabar ground as a sacred central theme. Above, esoteric symbols float below massive pointed crenellations that symbolically accentuate the connection between earth and sky. An extraordinarily exotic collection of natural dyes are juxtaposed in a successfully daring configuration. Mulberry, platinum and paled lemon harmonizes with sage green, chestnut, and tinges of luxurious Tyrian purple in a singular palette. Lovingly held from overuse for generations, this rare offering's condition is outstanding with heavy pile.
