Have you seen the wonderful designs of William Morris?
A key figure in the Arts & Crafts Movement, Morris championed a principle of handmade production that didn't chime with the Victorian era's focus on industrial'progress.
The source of the rug comes from the book Antique Rugs of Kurdistan A Historical Legacy of Woven Art, James D. Burns, 2002 nr.9. This rug is presumably made by Kurds of the Ahl-i-Haqq (Yarsani) region, a sect of the ‘Cult of Angels’, attributed to the village of Kandula in Southern Kurdistan, southwest of Sonqor, late 19th century. The motifs floating in the center have a religious significance: they represent the six avatars, a multi-personal representation of the divinity similar in concept to the Christian Trinity. The six are Moses, Jesus, Christ, Noah, Mithra, Sultan Sahak, and the female avatar Dayrak. The wide white ground border has a series of alternating floral-like motifs, a characteristic south Kurdish design symbolizing turtles, used to pay homage to Khidir. These are executed in a more floral, less geometric manner. The design of this rug is interpreted by our designers and the most appropriate colors to match the original are used for this rug.
