Anatolian Bacali Prayer Rug (153x84cm)

Anatolian (Konya-Bacali) Prayer Rug circa 1950 153x84cm

This is gorgeous Anatolian prayer rug from the Turkish village of Bacali near Konya.

The beauty of this rug rests in its symbolic ambiguity. The image of the mosque strikingly resembles a Christian church while the other symbolic element can be easily interpreted as a goblet and a host. The image is further blurred by the application of a very meticulous (dazzling) weaving technique. Who was the weaver? What did she want to say?
