Drawings Symbolism


It's so difficult to distinguish between ornament and symbol. But, through centuries, in the majority of carpets, similar drawings still exist, in all different productions, witnessing a common conceptual origin.

Ignoring this matter of the artistic process doesn't just restrict the knowledge of its genesis but also blocks a better comprehension of its poetic and spiritual essence.

Artistic images in a primitive society born thanks to the meeting between the fenomenal life and the idea of supernatural.

Every object, even the non-religious ones, was decorated in order to represent the Divine and communicate with the great Universal design.

The relationship between the living being, temporal things and supernatural reign led to the creation of signs, well codified drawings with clear esotheric meanings, abstract metafors beyond the simple and pure decoration.

This is why the symbolic analysis of drawings must be done with extreme caution.
