Wheels of history Collection

The collection is dedicated to the regions of Azerbaijan. It exhibits the beauty of every corner of the country, reflecting the cultural riches and diversity of all different areas of Azerbaijan.

The model was inspired by elements of the Maraza carpet, one of the earliest exemplars of the Shirvan carpet.

Maraza is situated in Gobustan region, close to Gobustan - an extraordinary open air museum of petroglyphs, pre-historic images carved on rocks. Maraza carpets are often known as ‘Gobustan’. Carpets from this region have a unique composition which differentiates them from other Azerbaijani carpets. Butas (paisley symbols) woven in different forms and vertical lines with flower-zoomorphic ornaments reflect culture and the living habits of local people. The bird and horned rhomb depicted on this model are typical in the dark-red ‘Maraza’ carpets, and according to local beliefs they protect against resentful souls.
