As the first Azerbaijani jewelry brand, Resm Jewelry has recently presented its unique collection inspired by ornaments and designs of Azerbaijani carpets.
This item has been inspired by the medallion often woven in Lankaran and Garabagh carpets. Oldwavers call it Bagali,“tortoise”.
Some interpretations say tortoise was a symbol of wisdom and long life in carpets. It isthoughtthatthesetypesof medallionsare derived from the 16th-18th century “Dragon rugs”. Often an image of scorpion is woven in the center of medallion. The scorpion represents defense. Some opinions suggest that their continued presence tought children to be unafraid and, therefore lessened the risk ofthembeingstung byattemptingtoshrink away from a live example.
