Description

This book examines the origin and development stages of Armenian carpet ornaments  and compositional structures.  Comparing and analyzing the collected data, combined with the study of ethnographic, archaeological, bibliographic, and folklore materials, resulted in a comprehensive classification of carpet compositions and ornaments according to their form and content. The study aims at showing the connection of the art and craft of Armenian carpet weaving, which occupies a unique place in the ethno-cultural tradition, with the periods of Armenia’s economic, political and spiritual development, from the early agricultural period to the Soviet years.

The study aims at showing the connection of the art and craft of Armenian carpet weaving, which occupies a unique place in the ethno-cultural tradition, with the periods of Armenia’s economic, political and spiritual development from the early agricultural period to the Soviet years. An attempt is made in the study to reveal the preconditions and reasons for the upsurge and decline of Armenian carpet art. The study of the indissoluble ties between the Armenian carpet art and Armenian  spiritual or folk and religious worships and  rituals occupies a  special place in the book.
