Marvelous Antique Turkish Konya Prayer Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa date: 1900 – This gorgeous red and blue antique Islamic prayer design area rug is an excellent example of the artistry of the rug weavers of Konya. This captivating antique Turkish rug was created around the turn of the 20th century and is a fascinating piece for several reasons. It would make an excellent addition to a collection or to use as an accent rug.

Konya is an area that has been inhabited since the 3rd millennium BCE. It has been the center of civilization and an area that was inhabited by many different cultures that left their mark. Antique Turkish Konya rugs are known for their rich colors and distinctive tribal elements. This one shows a combination of tribal symbolism and the prayer niche that is used in the Islamic art and faith.

The antique Turkish rug is the intersection of centuries-old tribal traditions with the influences of Islam. The design is known as the “Mihrab” and is a representation of the prayer niches that you find in mosques. These Muslim Prayer design area rugs were used to say daily prayers if you were in an area where a mosque was not available.

The highly collectible area rugs were placed in the home or carried along as one traveled from place to place so that you always had a proper place to say daily prayers. This one is small enough to have been used for travel. The antique rugs that bare the mihrab design are a special class because they are both utilitarian and designed for a specific purpose, and they are designed to reflect the sublime beauty that you find in the tilework and artistry of the mosque itself.

This Turkish prayer design antique Konya rug is a magnificent example of the blending of tribal cultures and the influences that shaped this unique city. The area where the rugs were produced provided the right environment for wools that are durable, soft, and that have a sheen to them. The local area provides an abundance of plants to create the beautiful colors that we see in this Turkish Konya. It is a gorgeous tribal rug that will add brilliant color to any room of the home or as a colorful addition to a collection.
