Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – This cryptic vintage rug woven in Morocco during the mid-20th century depicts a series of geometric symbols and zoological motifs arranged in formal rows. The abstract field is framed by zigzagging maize yellow borders that are carefully outlined in contrasting colors. Each ambiguous bird motif and zoological medallion features bold walnut brown outlines that contrast the sandy apricot pink bodies. Subtle maize yellow lozenges and geometric symbols decorate the motifs while highlighting the unusual contours and appendages that each symbolic figure possesses. Undulating zigzag patterns formed by pyramidal figures divide the elongated field into distinct areas that are decorated with a variety of similarly cryptic symbols.
