This vintage Moroccan rug is a stylistic dichotomy that explores the duality of symbols, color and form with symmetric and asymmetric figures rooted in history.

Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is an exciting and dynamic vintage carpet – a vintage mid 20th century Moroccan rug that was woven in the high Atlas mountains of Morocco, during the middle years of the twentieth century. A beautiful example, this carpet effectively communicates some of the finer points of the popular Moroccan style of design and weaving. Rendered in a striking hue of deep kohl black set over a sumptuous shearling ground, this vintage Moroccan rug embodies the achromatic feel of the most prized Berber rugs. Its abstract visage is alluring and inherently versatile while simultaneously revealing the deep history and origins of the ancient symbolic decorations. Symmetric and asymmetric elements are carefully balanced vertically and laterally. Enclosed lozenges, representing the female form, are juxtaposed against masculine border motifs and outlying figures. This original lozenge-in-lattice pattern skillfully balances symmetry and asymmetry with open-ended Xs and interconnected lozenge grids that swiftly draw the eye across the composition. From the archaic repertoire of symbols to the modern achromatic palette and luxurious woolen texture, this vintage Moroccan rug captures the rich aesthetic of these luxurious tribal rugs.
