~Star Ushak~ ~Medallion Ushak~

The large format Ushak carpets, with their geometrical complexity, wide range of natural color, and immense scale, represent the culmination of the classical line for many carpet scholars, collectors and aficianados.  They balance both orthogonal and curvilinear geometry and centralized and endless field design patterns.  Scholars have termed this these carpets a "design revolution".  Although clearly refined by the Ottoman Turks, the seeds for this revolution have attributed to Seljuk, Timurud and Safavid cultural influences.  These are palace scale carpets--they define a space that is both centralized and limitless, placing the viewer in the middle of an infinite universe, in an earthly paradise garden.
