Exhibition Western Azerbaijani Carpets: The Memory of Our Historical Pattern was opened at the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum
On December 5th, the exhibition Western Azerbaijani carpets: The Memory of Our Historical Pattern was opened at the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum. The event is held within the framework of 100th anniversary of National Leader Heydar Aliyev and is organized jointly by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Western Azerbaijan Community and the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum. The exhibition displays 21 carpets and carpet products with famous compositions woven by masters from the regions and villages of Western Azerbaijani counties such as Goycha, Zangezur, Aghbaba, Pambak and Loru.
These are the carpets Gasimushaghi, Lampa, Mughan, Gubadli, Ganja, etc., brought by our compatriots deported from their native land. They treat these carpets like a relic. Western Azerbaijani women applied classical traditions, rich patterns and unique colour scheme in these carpet samples woven based on the famous compositions. At the same time, they managed to skilfully add their feelings, eye-catching colour scheme and informative details that make these carpets special.
The flat-woven shadda and the carpet product khurjun (a valise consisting of two parts), which is widely used in household amazes the visitors.
It should be noted, that the exhibition also features the catalogue Western Azerbaijani Carpets: The Memory of Our Historical Pattern and a video on the same theme.
The exhibition will be on until January 5th, 2024.
