Antique Turkish Oushak Runner, Country of Origin: Turkey¬†– Embodying the best traits of rustic Turkish designs, this antique Oushak rug has a primitive countenance with uncharacteristically strong colors and potent symbolic decorations. These rustic ornaments have stark graphic qualities and a level of simplicity that showcases the weavers’ symbolic heritage beautifully. Stacked roundels filled with cruciform hac symbols line the field from end to end creating a clever striped pattern that relies on symbolic ornaments. A pure heraldic blend of golden ochres, madder reds and clear blues accent the decorative motifs that are set over the bucolic nut-brown ground. Small-scale goz symbols, a representation of the eye, fill the open space between the roundel towers and emphasize the symbolic nature of this decorative antique¬†carpet, which embodies design traditions and iconography in classical Anatolian handcrafts.
