Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
Fascinating to find five men lurking in a soumac rug fragment…..
Here they are!
Am assuming they are men because of the hair.
The lower half is mermaidesque … am sure there a reason for the unique shape.
Further, there is some elibelinde similarity – if you turn it upside down, the hands are held in the manner of Elibelinde … coincidence?
I’ve seen little crowns on birds – a decorative triangle …. but this is the first time I’m seeing it on men.
Candelabra? Is there a cultural significance?
What might it be?
There’s an interesting story behind this fragment – that I will tell another day in another note.
Right now these men are too distracting!
My musings may be completely off the mark –
Please share your knowledge if you have an idea about what these quasi-men are…
