20890 Vintage red Beni M'Guild Carpet, Berber Moroccan rug with Modern Tribal style. Featuring a luminous fiery glow, rich waves of abrash, and luxury underfoot, this hand knotted wool vintage red Moroccan Beni M'Guild rug is bursting with chromatic brilliancy and emotional energy. Lacking a written language, the Berber Tribe weavers created pieces rich in symbolism and history to document their everyday existence. A series of small triangles form the main diamond lattice that unite and resemble an hourglass shape, a traditional reference to the female form. This Beni Mguild rug is heavily ornamented with diamond shapes, which represent a woman's openness to conceive and the power of womanhood. Some of the lozenges are filled with the Burdock motif with latch-hook edges are protection symbols and meant to capture evil spirits. The vertical borders along the sides represent the male's presence. In Moroccan rugs, male motifs often appear on the outer portions of the composition, framing and enclosing the female motifs. This presentation can be seen as symbolizing fertility, as well as protection and the sanctuary of the family. Though deceptively simple, this beautiful red Moroccan rug is clearly laced with meaning and cultural significance.
