Symbols of Kilim

Symbols of Kilim

The mysterious shapes, which we describe as symbols, lie on the boundary between reality and imagination. We cannot dismiss them as mere figments of the imagination and without significance however, even though we may not understand them. 

They might appear to the uninitiated to be subjective, but in fact they are strictly governed by cultural rules and principles.

Symbols reflect the very origins of art, when the individual first became aware of the sacred aspect of nature and they gradually came to embody all the diverse socio-cultural elements of human existence.

Women into colorful kilim also weave events and ideas that human beings have endeavoured to express in stone, clay and frescos.
