Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – Vintage rugs woven in Morocco come in many different styles. This piece features a diverse selection of ancient protection symbols and glyphs rendered in a simple minimalist color scheme that has become a regional hallmark for Moroccan rug makers. Symbolic checkers and line-based structures divide the clear ivory field into several distinct compartments. Each compartment is decorated with a variety of lozenge patterns, fetter symbols, berekets, scorpions and serpentine extensions included for protection against various malignant forces and earthy dangers like the venomous scorpion. Ancient protection symbols, abstract designs and the unorthodox composition emphasize the tribal charm of this handsome vintage Moroccan rug.
