This carpet represents #wisdom for #eternity!
Wait, there is more - male energy vs female energy.
Take your home to a bold new level by trying out this Moroccan with its unexpected, but surprisingly wonderful, color palette. The Moroccan weavers, mostly women, incorporate design elements from their personal experience into the rugs designs. The symbols are usually references to events and aspects of their daily life such as beliefs, birth, fertility, nature, femininity, life and spirituality. Some believed that the rugs could even ward off evil spirits. While the patterns may seem whimsical and random – they are very significant to the rug weaver’s life. In this particular Moroccan, the blue and yellow hues complement each other and allow the brown to create balance without contrast. Together, these colors look sophisticated and a bit retro. In Berber culture, blue symbolizes wisdom and yellow represents eternity. Animated with invigorating triangles and secondary protection symbols, this vintage Moroccan rug offers many meanings that are represented through its geometric shapes. Triangles are known to represent the past, present, and future or spirit, mind and body. The orientation of triangles are important too. A triangle that points upward represents a strong foundation or stability, as it is rooted to the ground through a solid base. Triangles that point-up also symbolize male energy, and fire and air are masculine elements. The downward pointing triangle represents female energy, and water and earth are feminine elements. Measures: 04'04" x 06'10". Available online at 1stdibs or visit our showroom at 1500 Hi Line, Ste A in the Dallas Design District.
