About the object

Carpet in hand-knotted wool in dark red, blue and beige gul motifs.

Light wear indicative of use. No rip or fading.

Guls can carry a further range of symbolic meanings. For example, when seen in carpets, the more round-shaped guls tend to symbolise celestial bodies such as the sun, moon or stars. Each version of the gul corresponds to different cultural significance, and provides information about the source, age and construction of the piece.
