Karapinar

19th C (4th Q)
Turkey
DESCRIPTION:

The Karaman-Karapinar region of south central Anatolia, where this rug originates, is well known for its long and rich tradition of weaving. This type of rug with its distinctive medallion and corner-pieces is perhaps the region’s most iconic type. It’s dark deep hues are masterfully balanced with the white of the inner medallion and border. While the weaver clearly had the technical proficiency to create a rigidly symmetrical design, in keeping with the aesthetics of antique Anatolian weaving she has instead experimented with proportion and drawing to create a more fluid and organic composition.
