Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid 20th Century – This carefully composed mid-century vintage rug created in Morocco showcases a series of formal inset-lozenge medallions linked by a dramatic zigzagging centerpiece. Each inset lozenge is framed by a series of symbolic stepped outlines. Floating lozenge-shaped amulets, hac motifs and geometric protection symbols dot the formally composed field blocking the malevolent glances of the evil eye. The symbolic theme continues throughout the field and borders. Geometric amulets featuring small-scale lozenge motifs set in itinerant bars create a formal border that encloses the broad geometric motifs that decorate the field. This detailed mid-century rug captures a tremendous variety of ambiguous symbols and nuanced details that have deep cultural significance.
