Rendered in a meandering hand-drawn style, this vintage rug created in Morocco during the mid-20th century showcases a charming variety of stacked-lozenge chains.

Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – This delicately decorated vintage carpet from Morocco depicts a strong central column of grand lozenges comprised of wandering outlines that create lozenge-shaped islands and intimated checkers. Secondary vines of interlaced lozenges, which are carefully placed within other patterns, flank the central column continuing the symbolic lozenge theme. Towering Tree of Life motifs with tightly spaced branches line the edges of the field, and angular glyphs with branching appendages dot the lower reaches of the background adding further protection from the evil eye to this symbolically rich carpet. An expanding latticework fence divides the field into distinct sections creating a beautiful opportunity to embellish half of each lozenge with tiny checks. This archetypal rug emphasizes the creative and ingenious ways Moroccan weavers incorporate symbolic devices into their work.
