Modern Turkish Seahorse Design Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Recently Made / Late 20th Century - Here is a unique and whimsical modern seahorse carpet - a contemporary rug woven in Turkey during the final years of the twentieth century, or the first years of the twenty-first. Featuring a unique and curious composition, this modern Turkish carpet is certainly a one of a kind production. This elegant, modern and casually styled underwater carpet from Turkey depicts a majestic seahorse surrounded by flourishing sea grass fronds that mirror the stately colors featured throughout the composition. The deeply symbolic seahorse was an important figure to the Greeks and Romans that was highly regarded as a representation of strength and power. The elegant composition incorporates a traditional triad of neutral ecru hues paired with somber blue and muted burgundy. Polychromatic accents, linear details and contrasting outlines emphasize the form of this iconic marine animal. This aquatic modern rug perfectly embodies the naturalistic, organic style that is all the rage today. Beautiful and whimsical, this mid-century Turkish carpet is a charming example.
