Mamluk rugs are the most magnificent and complete group of early rugs to have survived to the present day. Their geometric designs are characterized by complex, intricate patterns.
This gorgeous Mamluk (shown below) is representative of a traditional Mamluk rug and is woven in the customary madder red and green with touches of gold. The rug features three center medallions and repeating “kaleidoscopic” designs. The main border has a madder red background with golden edges and elements in chocolate brown, green and rust red.
According to Egyptian myth, Horus, the falcon-headed god, lost his eye in a battle with the god Seth. Restored by the god Thoth, the Eye of Horus became associated with protection. The extensive use of this pattern (see below) in Mamluk weavings, used in pairs to divide the circle into eighths, suggests that it held special meaning to the rug weavers.
