Created in Morocco, this stellar vintage rug depicts a fantastic array of ancient protection symbols. The airy composition possesses the randomity of astral constellations, which create ambiguous patterns that remain open to interpretation. The strategically placed symbols and geometric details create secondary patterns as they align with neighboring elements.
Jason Nazmiyal, the owner of the Manhattan-based rug company that bears his name, has been buying and selling antique and vintage rugs for three decades. His goal is not merely to find and offer the finest handcrafted rugs—worthy though that goal is—but also to share his knowledge of and passion for the art form. His collection, which ranges from Moroccan runners to Swedish flatweaves to antique Oushaks, shows that he continues to achieve both ambitions.
