"Tulu" Rug with Ascending Arches

About

An old tribal rug from Central Turkey, woven in the shaggy "Tulu" style. The design is an interesting variation of a well-known theme consisting of highly stylized "arches." Often assumed to be a type of prayer rug design, this intriguing imagery appears to have a more ancient origin.
