What does this mean?

Dear James,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

Based on the information and images you provided, this item is:

A 20th century Turkish prayer rug. The Turkish prayer rug, a cultural treasure, encapsulates the rich artistic heritage and religious devotion of Turkey. Measuring around 67 inches x 37 inches, this meticulously crafted rug serves as a focal point for daily prayers, embodying both spiritual significance and artistic excellence. Woven with precision, the intricate patterns and vibrant colors of the prayer rug create a visual tapestry that reflects the cultural identity and artistic traditions of the region.

Adorned with geometric motifs, floral designs, and often featuring a mihrab (prayer niche) pointing toward Mecca, the Turkish prayer rug is a symbolic representation of the Islamic faith. The careful arrangement of elements not only facilitates the physical alignment of the worshipper but also carries profound spiritual meaning.

Fair condition. Signals of aging and use, faded colors.
