Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BG10
This vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild carpet exhibits strong male symbolism, evident in the zigzag motifs (derived from the snake) and side borders/central band of lozenge chains. The lozenge is a quintessential female Berber symbol, but when linked into a vertical chain, it becomes a sign of male protection. The abrashed magenta ground is a low dense pile with pattern knotted in orange, charcoal grey, faded violet, olive green/grey, and ivory. Minor fringe loss. 100% wool.
